WHAT I MISS ABOUT YOU STRANGER
Surge, Established Specialist Artist Residency 2022
Test of the Performance during the residency
The endoscope is able to span the physical and psychological chasm created by a global pandemic. The camera becomes an extended arm or a kind of paint brush, recording, tracing and rendering participants in the space and simultaneously creating a live interactive performance and a film that fragments the participants’ bodies into gestures, sounds and drifting contours.
Ideally as viewers respond to my performance, the choreography is improvised between the perform- er, the camera, and the audience. I want to interrogate the position of the performer, I want the audience to be equally at the center of the performance, allowing the audience to see themselves through me.
