Take a sound and video recording device and outline the
space of the performance by scratching the surfaces, objects and people
in the space with the recording device, following a chosen trajectory.Record the sound and the image of this action and play them
back consecutively and separately in the same space after the action is
As the instructions are projected on the wall, the performer follows a
chosen trajectory in the performance space, literally touching and
scratching surfaces of the built interior, objects and people in the
room with an audio and video recording device. The specific sounds and
moving images produced by scratching are being recorded with the device.
After the physical action of touching is completed, the
resulting sound is being played back in the space, followed by a silent
projection of the resulting video.
In Surface Studies the live event, the recorded sound
and video emerge as different articulations of the relationship between
the performer and the haptic/tactile qualities of the space and the
bodies present at that moment.
