Deferral II

2011

Performance, Video, Installation

Deferral II has emerged from the ongoing series "Deferral" as an exploration in materials, mark making, and traces. Deferral II is a study of the trace and the temporality of the creative act through the presentation of a visual landscape made with light and memory. Over the time of a week, I created a series of live performances that involved the creation of temporary "marks" on large "canvases" with my body and other materials including yarn, paper, glitter, and light. These performances were recorded and manipulated to form a multichannel, projected video installation.
