The Long and Short of It 

2018

in collaboration with Marcel Zaes 

A durational sound and movement installation designed as a score for one or many bodies. 

In this score a body finds and occupies land. The body must act within a set of rules, while also confronting accumulating residues of previously occupied lands. At once present and redundant, the body weakens as it loses and finds new ground. Dissipating time is amplified by recurring pulses. Heavy, delicate, distorted, and sustained noise maps each cycle. In this precarious setting, it remains unclear whether this is a map or the landscape itself. Audiences may come and go as they like.
