collaboration #01

20′ duo performance with Bilwa
materials: coal, microphone and cable

performed: mo.ë, Vienna AT, July 13th, 2013

collaboration #01 as well as collaboration #02 involve two simple, simultaneous, and gradual actions of changing, and/or removal of lines, which also creates sound. One line consists of black, pulverized charcoal and the other is a line created by a stretched microphone cable.

The charcoal line is changed by a repeated action of stepping and foot dragging, while the microphone cable is simultaneously dragged by completely removing the line.

This project experiments with time and space, specifically duration. While collaboration #01 lasted for 20 minutes and spanned a length of 7 meters, collaboration #02 lasted 3 hours and spanned a length of 15 meters.
