Surveillance

(1988)

In a pitch black space, the performance consisted of walking —following tape on the floor with my bare feet— around the seated audience. While circling the audience I spoke through a 1-watt radio transmitter, and this was received and amplified through a speaker by a radio I was dragging on the floor behind me. I was speaking about the disconnected yet-tethered relationship between myself and my amplified voice.

Performance for John Oswald’s Pitch concert series, Sound Symposium, St.John’s, Newfoundland, 1992.
