Within a circuit

• Performance/Installation, 2017
• NARS International Residency, Brooklyn, NY
• This Performance inserts the human into a mechanical system. The movement of the system is generated by two fans on the ceiling that are powered by electricity. Two fans on the floor are powered by the airflow created by the spinning fans on the ceiling. The fans on the floor are connected by a piece of string from which a container of the artist’s blood is suspended. When the blades of the fans hit the string, the vibrations may cause a drop of blood to spill onto the paper underneath.The human subject of the system introduces a momentary resistance by impeding the circular movement of the fan, and is slowly spent in the process.
