And does it edge closer?
Created for the back hallway of a run-down warehouse space, And does it edge closer? is a durational performance for one audience member at a time.
This piece questions our perceptions of consistency or stasis. Over the course of one hour, the performer moves at a constant, very slow speed. Water drips onto them from above, causing the gradual disintegration of a tissue paper costume. The slow, gradual progression gives a sense of quietness, but this stands in contrast to the effort required by the performer to sustain the task. A visually and sonically stark environment adds to the atmosphere created by the tension between these opposing qualities.
