Light Strike (An Open Window) – Geoffrey Weary


LIGHT/STRIKE (AN OPEN WINDOW) is a performance work that was recorded with an obsolete SONY PORTA-PAK video camera manufactured in the 1970’s. The unique properties of the camera infuse the work with a fragile, vaporous presence. This in turn suggests a metaphoric process of disappearance and erasure, not just of the performer as human presence but also of the very technology that renders her presence visible to us. A signified absence as “digital effect” or “composited media” also situates the work outside the limits of contemporary techno – aesthetic practices.
