Funk Improvisation For One Performer and Archival Dancers
Funk Improvisation For One Performer and Archival Dancers
My research and creative practice explores the intersection between video, sound, and interactivity. My work investigates the circularity and cyclicality of time by rearranging the flow of past and present, telling stories in non-linear looping flows, or subdividing time into tiny units to be dynamically recombined. I create new instruments for performance and new interfaces for interaction, connecting physical gesture to narrative space. My works are not self-contained objects that are fixed in time and space. Rather, they are open-ended environments whose resolution does not occur until the moment of interaction, and processes that function in the present. As such, these works maintain an element of risk, randomness, improvisation, and unpredictability.

Duet For Alto and Tenor Televisions (Multimedia Performance, 2003) is a performance piece using an electronic video/music instrument of my own design. In the improvised performance, tiny snippets of historical found footage are obsessively re-examined and remixed into a live sonic and visual collage. Shifting loops intensify the grain of the voice and image, the micro-gestures of the filmed subjects, and the rhythms that fall into and out of phase as the material is recombined.

Revenge Of The Lawn (Durational Video Installation, 2003) is an installation that examines our culture’s estrangement from organic processes and pokes fun at our desire to master the natural world. Located in the backyard of Chicago’s 1926 Exhibition Studies Space during the summer of 2003, “Revenge Of The Lawn” was a living room scene made out of found furniture reupholstered with soil and seeds. It was an environment designed to encourage “nature” to reclaim “man-made” objects and permeate the boundary between Indoor and Outdoor. During the course of the installation, viewers could visit www.revengeoftheawn.com for a live webcam and ongoing time-lapse video footage of the installation as it sprouted, grew, and ultimately withered and died. The website remains as a record of the piece.
