Collaboration with Aki Sasamoto: Exit Art, NYC 2006
hotplates, extension cords, thimble, steel rod, rubber boots, speech
The performer stands in rubber boots filled with water. She is surrounded by a dozen portable hotplates scattered on the floor. Holding a long-handled tool with a tiny thimble at its end, the performer scoops up a thimble-full of water and extends the tool out to a hotplate. As she empties the water, the hotplate steams and instantly the water turns to vapor. As she repeats this activity, the performer vocalizes foods she imagines eating.
