Studies in Stillness

2015

Durational Performance

Moving at the threshold of stillness as the body is abstracted into a swarm of light — an apparition on the fringe of site. For this performance, I am dressed completely in black, with face and body covered, and fitted with wearable LEDS and a motion sensor. I slowly pace the Grangegorman campus for two hours, with the lights triggered to illuminate when either I move or the wind moves me. Even though my body is obscured, my actions and gestures are exteriorized through light. Photographs by Blueprint Photography. Video shot by Manu di Marco and edited by EL Putnam.
