collaboration #02

3 hour duo performance with Bilwa
materials: coal, microphone, cable

performed: Friday Exit, Vienna. July 19th, 2013

collaboration #02 involves 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.
