Self-Portrait I (prayer)
A performance ritual.
Performed for two hours, visitors can come and go.
Microphones and transducers hidden underneath the soil and on my body turn my movements into sound, light, and vibration that travel through the ground.
I make forms with the soil and watch them collapse from the sounds of their own building. Occasionally I invite a visitor up to the soil. Occasionally I sit and breathe, adding to feedback loops and allowing them to build up and die.
