Works in Progress
A large-scale project cycle includes performances, objects and videos concerned with global capital’s alienating effects on our consciousness through materiality and labor. With humor, pathos and an interest in craft and industrial production, this project forms parafictions that are absurd and dead serious. I’m working with an ensemble in live performances and videos that enact compositions based on the idea of conduction that is material, musical, and social and referencing experimental music, physical labor and speech acts. includes a new video, performance, musical instruments, glass, weavings and images about absurdist production cycles and abstracted materiality. The video (stills below), shot in caves and mines in New Mexico, will follow a production cycle of copper into a wire factory and a power grid.
This project is supported by Creative Capital and will be shown at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
