HI FI takes its name and inspiration from “High Fidelity” recording and playback systems. These systems, or rather this community of systems, are designed to reproduce the experience of a live performance with minimum noise interference caused by the system itself. Within this framework of documentation and reproduction grew a series of actions and objects that reflect matter in flux; matter as it appears before and after its capture and reorganization as other matter.
During the sections of the show, distinct types of transmission particular to the overlap of object making and performance are illustrated.
For the duration of performance, a professional transcriber translates all visual and aural information into text which is then projected live onto a wall of the performance space. This transcription, recorded as a document, also serves as a possible script for future performance.
As performed at Atlantis Gallery, Richmond, VA, 2014
