Live Video Collage, 2011
Live Performance w/ Assorted Objects + Live Video Feed

Catapult Project Space, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
60mins Duration




Hunkered down at a community project space with a suitcase of found objects, antiquated items and organic materials (bones, leaves, fruit, etc.), this one-hour live performance was an experiment in storytelling through touch.  Using a handheld camercorder connected to a monitor, a live video feed magnified tiny details and peculiar characterists of select ephemera.

As the artist investigates the objects at hand, an improvised story begins to take place through the video on-screen.  Close-up, macro images onscreen offer a visceral experience for viewers, as the artist works in real-time.
