Sand and Tar

San Francisco, CA

The following footage was taken during performative work Sand and Tar, and appeared on a monitor simultaneously with the performance. Sand taken from the Northern California Coastline was combined with roofing tar, to make up the primary scenery for a performance. Emphasizing my backdrop, I immersed myself in an intense physical and psychological performance on top of the natural and industrial forms. Using amplified sound, with a waterproof contact mic, the artist rubbed, scratched, and played with the surface.
