Collision, was installed at Broadway 1602 in New York City and opened November 1, 2008. The installation is made of three interlocking parts.

The show explored different rhythms in audience participations.


 


 


TOUCHING with Collage II A large table with photographs of various sizes and contact sheets of performance works (Yvonne Rainer and "Story of a Woman who..." from 1973 and Robert Whitman's Works). The sound surrounding the table came from a television projection of a Collage of films made during the period of the performance works when the photographs were shot, creating an aural context to a visual that was constantly shuffled and reconfigured by the visitor that was free to manipulate the cards, reorganized them, sort them by sizes, movements and more....

STRAINING a short loop of tree branches and leaves shaken by strong winds that uses repetitions and returns to insistent close ups and jump cuts. The sound is played low and is very choppy.

STRIVING was based on continuity instead of interruption and was at night. The musical track written by Anthony Burr was based on variation of Ravel's Bolero. The duration was much longer and the intent was to encourage a hypnotic response.


The spectator was undergoing three distinct viewing experiences in the three different works.
