Traverse through familiar terrain with pop-up clowns and boats, with hot dogs, fans and grids. Duration makes space. Call it breathing room.
Here time collects like aggregate data and is metered by the sound of my feet. Jumping jacks discharge excess adrenaline.
Daniel told me this video points to what is missing and that he teared up around the four-minute marker. Nothing is really happening then.

Positional tolerance must only be applied to features of size, which requires that the feature have at least two opposable points. Point and talk. But I’m pretty terrified. I mean, I’m pretty tricked. It’s my physical training, personal training, pain threshold. Thresholding. I carry the blood to my feet. The pass through, the phase transition - my phantom torso collapses. Test my proficiency, when you text me, test me, testxted me. Plain text. Part time. Preferential treatment. Plain touch. It’s party time. I pledge you my togetherness, my pathetic transport. Peace time. Power test. Personal transformation. “She needs a poker tracker,” I said. “I need a toker cracker,” she said. It’s plenary talk. when nothing else is scheduled. We are making contact at a single point on a single line. We are touching. We are not intersecting. It’s the measure of isokinetic performance/pro-trajectory/parallel time. Perpetual time. Process tracker. Positional tolerance is a location control used on engineered drawings to specify desired location, as well as allowed deviation to the position of a feature on a part.

Artifact_2 (BIGBB) a durational performer, demonstrates its processual making/remaking endlessly. In this iteration, the basin's super-saturated solution slowly evaporated/crystallized. Eventually escaping its container - it grew over the side, down the plinth and onto the floor.

Festival to Planned Obsolescence
(2012 - present)
The ongoing project, Festival to Planned Obsolescence: My_Space uses the avatar #Mysft/Mystc to explore online platforms as a ghost performer/digital ethnographer. #M/M plays the sacred clown, an ancient archetype. Forever oscillating between extremes, s/he exists in duality- marked by marginalia, shame, and irreverence, but paradoxically expressing sanctification and transformation. Broadcasting from my studio, the site of both production and performance, I use the online forum ChatRoulette as the space for interaction, seeking chance encounters that allow for simultaneous connection and disruption. Due to the site's easy in and out affordances, interactions are presented in endless succession; one-to-one video feed creates an open contract between parties, blurring subject/object, performer/audience distinctions. The hyper-physical space of making extends into virtual space as flattened image-in-flux. This extension is theatrical; when circumstances allow and a duration elapses, the work may become a kind of cruel theater, manifesting the physicality of desire and disgust.
