All these things matter
You are in full control of your actions
Stand straight and await my instructions
This praxis session
is based on the performance Limit-Cruisers
(#1 Sphere), but it is a low-tech and experimental version
where the work is used as a test site to further expand on
notions such as individuality, autonomy, self-exploitation,
adaption, and escapism.
The work consists of five synchronized soundtracks entitled
"Sound check", ”New Individualism”, ”Decoy”, ”The
Heroes of Absolute Zero”, and “Countdown”.
In relation to the praxis session at PSi19, a paper
was pesented entitled: ”What You See is not What You
Get – Performance as a Mode of Thinking”. It was
part of the panel: "A Moment in the Life of a Psychic
Subject", June 28, 2013.
