YOUR HEAD IS A CASKET FOR THE COOL JEWEL OF YOUR MIND

Solo performance at Nemoralia – one-day performance event at Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh. Curated by Alexa Hare (2016).

Performance inside ‘Temple of Apollo’ (2005) public sculpture by Ian Hamilton Finlay.

Amplified live singing, recorded electronic music, custom vinyl jacket, L.E.D lights, spraypainted microphone cable, vape. 6’30”.

Recorded music and live singing: ‘Love Immersion‘ dance track made in collaboration with Simon Bayliss as ‘Splash Addict‘.

 

During the sung performance, lights worn around the neck were switched on, highlighting the interior of the transparent vinyl jacket slowly steaming up with vape and body heat. Performance was accompanied by exhalation of vape during instrumental parts of the track. Spray painted microphone cable suggested visual representation of flowing voice and vape.
