Vocal Sabotage

Video performance


Introducing physical obstruction into my declaration of activity, I display a very conscious and purposeful attempt at vocal distortion. As not to compromise the futility of the action proceeding this exercise, I suppress the idea of individual expression, effectively removing my ability to communicate through a disruption of verbal delivery. I would re-purpose the components used in the performance being referred to; gloves, boots, my shirt, etc. Doing this, I presented everyday experiences and activities as legitimate performance material. Inviting the viewer to consider the role of contextual clarity when composing a record, as well as to question the authenticity of said record. One is placed in a scenario which promises a state of perplexing intimacy. The focus is this time directly on the artists face and the viewer is subjected to a momentary sharing of the unease exhibited by the subject on screen.
