Hand mirrors, satin, elastic. Dimensions
I lie on the floor of a hotel room, with my head
inside a leather suitcase. Out of the suitcase spill
medicine bottles, white gloves and ballet shoes. I
lie perfectly still for thirty minutes.
I direct my breath at a mirror hanging by a ribbon
from the ceiling. As I breathe, the mirror spins, and
the light reflecting off it orbits the room. Duration
twenty minutes. Photographs byOliver Smith.
I lie on the floor with a cluster of mirrors on top
of me. These are moved by my breath, as is the light
they reflect onto the adjacent wall. I begin to
laugh, and the pools of light shudder on the wall.
The laughter builds to hysteria, then subsides.
Duration twenty minutes.
I sit in a darkened room, holding a metal arm support
with a torch strapped to it. This light explores the
room as the metal arm swings on its internal pivot.
The performance ends when I stand up, and hundreds of
black marbles fall from my dress. Duration fifteen
