a multimedia installation/performance that addresses
issues of homelessness
and disenfranchisement. It serves as metaphor for the many burdens of the human
that are experienced by each of us alone. It raises issues about the burden of
trying to exist
in an increasingly technological society, where identity is reliant on participation.
a set of animations, a performance and a live mixed video featuring both.
A performer in white coveralls, pulling a weighted milk crate, drags this burden
around within the confines of the performance area. He carries a video projector
strung around his neck, that projects animations onto the ground ahead of him.
The performer slowly drags his burden round and round the location. He is illuminated
from above by video projections which form a large pool of light which is the
performance area. On adjacent walls we see projected the animations of a wandering
homeless person in a desolate landscape, mixed live with footage of the performer
in the space. The end result is a constant mixing and remixing of the images
of the live performer and the animated character.
