WHEN?
(every second counts)
1999

performance

Duration 30 minutes

The performance is about Time passing and passing Time.
Pre-recorded in the space it is performed in, using an echo effect, the video is then projected life size behind the performer who is attempting to keep pace with 3 projections of herself.

She unravels her story page by page, torn from the pad attached to her face, guided by her recorded voice telling the same story counting each second between the words.

The combination of stillness, repetitive action and continuous counting has an hypnotic effect and allows the audience to both experience and reflect upon the passage of time.

Performed at the LUX centre, London in September 1999
Shown as a video projection for Paris/Berlin international meeting at Cerise Gallery in Paris in April 2001, and at AROMA in Berlin in June 2001
