In this live performance, Sifuentes's slow, nuanced actions become a counterpoint to and critique of the unnaturally rapid and unyielding pace of the public environment, which she redefines as the private, feminine ritual space of a boudoir. The performance took place for three entire consecutive days (July 7-9, 2007) in Union Square, New York. Throughout the whole performance collaborator R. Luke DuBois documented the piece with video in three channels. Using a visual averaging computational process, DuBois representation of the entire 72 hour outdoor performance was algorithmically time-compressed before it was edited into a 63 minute video work.
This artwork was made in collaboration with WIKA, Toshiaki Ozawa and Todd Reynolds.
About the Artist
About R. Luke DuBois
Just as a long camera exposure fuses motion into a single image, his work reveals the average sonority, visual language, and vocabulary in music, film, text, or cultural information. His second solo exhibition with bitforms gallery in January 2011 marked the debut of A More Perfect Union, which looked at American self-identity through the medium of online dating services—melding romance, the census, and U.S. geography.
An active visual and musical collaborator, DuBois is the co-author of Jitter, a software suite for the real-time manipulation of matrix data. He appears on nearly twenty-five albums, both individually and as part of the avant-garde electronic group The Freight Elevator Quartet. DuBois holds a doctorate in music composition from Columbia University and teaches interactive sound and video performance at the Brooklyn Experimental Media Center at NYU's Polytechnic Institute.
Forthcoming exhibitions of DuBois work include Multiplicity at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, featuring Hindsight is Always 20/20, a 2008 project that examines vision of the American presidency. On October 22, 2011, a commissioned live performance project, The Marigny Parade, took place during the opening ceremony of Prospect 2 in New Orleans.
