sham

sham (taped as a live performance streamed through CCRMA at Stanford)  is the first work  made with Agdistis —  a mannequin transformed into an audiovisual instrument through sensors,  manipulating projection, sound, and video playback.

sham explores my attempts at intimacy with Agdistis, blurs the “fake” and the “real”, and reflects on the ridiculousness of unreturned affections.

(this work utilizes text from Richard Siken’s poem “Planet of Love”, an existent lullaby entitled “dummy song”, and samples from Elvis Presley and Mickey&Silvia)
