Bookshelf Piece

Performance in which I read random passages from books on my shelf until a suitable ending. Sometimes the passages are chosen based on old bookmarks that I made years ago. Through the improvised work, a narrative is generated. The work examines notions of meaning derived from text excerpts devoid of context delivered through media online while also highlighting a different type of intellectual experience when reading books. It offers the viewer a performance of intimacy as I personally engage with the information in real time on the YouTube platform.
