moving / mediations
public intervention on subway
collaborated with Margarita Garcia
New York City, USA
Moving / mediations is a subterranean performative gesture that disrupts the daily commute. Through a meditative performance, combined with a pirate broadcast and visual media, the artists seek to create a temporary contemplative space that opens the possibilities of re-engagement with ritual in public spaces. Inspired by the solitary, habitual nature of the subway- hurtling through dark tunnels, rhythmically beeping turnstiles; this work suggests the possibilities within social spaces interconnection in a network that is fluid, indefinite and open, echoing the artists embrace of new technologies as instruments for making art as well as the ritual potential within everyday gestures.
