Waiting without Waiting

Video still of performance with 2-channel corner HD video, 2015

Performance of Waiting without Waiting

In both of the videos projected at a corner, very little happens except for evidence of Earth’s movement in the turning wind turbines, gravity on the Pacific Ocean tides and the changing light. Another movement in geological terms is that the desert was an ocean, ages ago, and the ocean was once a desert. Mediating experiences with screens is a daily experience with technology, yet we are still connected to the Earth. In the performance, I mimic the movements using light and shadow with the screens of former experiences as a meditation that I am part of this desert, this ocean, and my body will one day return to the Earth. Waiting for continual changes with all things until death. Yet not waiting to around to die but rather being fully alive in the meantime.
