Summer 2013

Scottsdale, Arizona

A performance installation about women, writing, and memory commissioned by INFLUX 3, Scottsdale Public Art. An empty storefront in the shopping district of Downtown Scottsdale was converted to a performance space. All components were completely analog, consisting of three live security cameras, three DVD players, three televisions, and three A/B switchers. The performers were able to switch between prerecorded content or to live cameras during the performance. At times when there was no performance, the space was activated by content playing from the DVD players. Software: Final Cut Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Toast.
