Transnational Rhythms (2014)
Performance. 'A Europe for All, by All', Hundred Years Gallery. London.
Performance work that considers the possibility of a gift economy as a positive alternative to the current economic model focused on the interests of the self. Drawing parallels to how a number of online communities operate with the free distribution of media or software through downloading - participants are invited to download an audio piece that is given away for free. Within this work are spoken instructions in the form of different voice-overs that asks participants to perform gestures/actions in response to how current policies involving the privatisation of spaces contradict democracy, equality, social and environmental justice.
