Event description

Description

A few years ago I built a mapping app for the iPhone. The app tracked the user’s proximity to the last known whereabouts of missing people in Los Angeles. When the app was in beta I would drive to these abduction sites to test its integrity in real time. I began collecting objects that I found in these places and amassing a small collection of what could objectively be referred to as trash. I would also take field recordings when possible.

In this performance I will present a three channel video piece comprised of landscapes shot at several of these abduction sites alongside an ambient composition of the aforementioned field recordings. Holding this performance outside adjacent to passing cars and foot traffic is an attempt to highlight the intersection between two contrasting, yet co-existing geographies. The geography of the present and the geography of the missing.


Live Impeccably,

Dan
