︎ About / Contact
“In the pre-scientific conception of the body of the late classical and medieval periods, the body is seen as both open to and in complex interchange with manifold external influences, agencies, and energies, natural, divine, and demonic.”
Steven Connor, Dumbstruck: A Cultural History of Ventriloquism.
Tension Sets, 2013
is a 6-channel video and sound work that uses the sound of the amplified voice in performance, as both a literal (technical) and speculative force of change within the videos. The documentation of the performance is treated as separate to the event itself and taken up as a space in which to speculate about the capacity of the voice to effect, move or engage with its surrounding environment through visual and digital form.
