Play it Safe (2016)
Multimedia Performance,
Approx. 8 min.
A multimedia performance consisting of one performer and a television. The television cuts between a real-time live video feed of the performer and pre-recorded footage, creating a narrative that exists in multiple realities and times. Common television formats like karaoke instrumentals and late night television are used as structures to explore our relationships with screens. The work concludes with a duet between the performer and a figure on the television.
