Bird Watching installation and performance Hallwalls Buffalo, NY PROJECT LIST


A cacophony of birdlike sounds fills the gallery space. One can hear the installation long before one can see it. Different size monitors are set on bird like perches or in one case in a birdhouse. Water bottles (feeders) are attached to the monitors, which are being fed a video signal. Each bird is a different colour, blue, yellow, green, or red. Each one exists in a singular monitor. All but the red bird is a recorded set loop. Each shot is exactly the same and one cannot discern the live image from the recorded image. The audience is also being recorded and the live image is being transmitted to the room where I am performing live as the red bird. I can ‘see’ through my monitor. Who is the audience of whom? Everything thais “live” is also “recorded”.
