Massive Signaling, Gowanus Ballroom Brooklyn

gold cloud

Using my body I attempt to alter and transform an emergency survival blanket from Switzerland. Actions include laying down a tape line to the starting destination, flag waving and sustained sky coverage over my head to the point of exhaustion. The energy from these activities is captured and contained in the blanket for perpetuity as I twist it into a tight hand-held golden orb as a record of this performance.  Massive Signaling was presented at the Gowanus Ballroom: Collective Spectacle during the Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival (BIPAF), curated by Esther Neff and Mathew Silver.
