Lights on the River of the Eternal Baby Moon (2015) (Performance, vinyl, turntables, props made of foam, wood, fabric, elastic, paint) In collaboration with Kathleen Taylor Lights on the River… was performed at Live Biennale. The performance included vinyl records that were physically altered to isolate specific grooves and sample sound through the addition of paint. By adapting the Morse Code alphabet to our body movements, the dancing physically stuttered the sounds playing on the turn tables. Through this amateur radio practice, of sound and movement, the performance addressed a preverbal love letter to the moon.
