A collaboration between myself and multi-media artist, Andrew Bucksbarg altered the telephones for this piece. The desire here was to juxtapose ritual/instrumental actions, vocalization using the everyday common action of the telephone. Julie and Andrew move actions such as picking up the receiver, dialing, talking, and hanging up as well as exploring new possibilities the phones have to offer. How to engage in the preservation of an obsolete tradition?
This was originally presented at Cal Arts but then presented again at The New Experimental Variety Show and Side Street LIVE in Los Angeles.
