RECEIPT (2017)
Multimedia Performance
Approx. 6 min

A performer plays slide guitar under a camera. A second performer pulls a roll of receipt paper across the hole of the guitar, alluding to the mechanism of a player piano. Images on the paper are revealed as the song progresses via live projection. The viewer witnesses two forms of receipt- a grocery list, and an exchange between two people.
