Measures of Things, Remeasured
Measures of Things, Remeasured is a two-day durational performance piece, each performance eight hours long, shown here at the exhibition A Dark Rock Surged Upon at the Garner Arts Festival.
Six metronomes tick at varying speeds, and slow to a stop at different rates. I continue to lay beneath a fake boulder as a dancer makes her way around me, winding the metronomes and returning to the same wall. She does not interact with me or make eye contact. At times my arm stretches toward her, or my head turns to follow her feet. When the metronomes run out, or the last one is very close, the process resumes, repeats.
