Through my body to your body and back
This Masters of Art & Design, Through My Body To Your Body And Back, is a multi-channel sound installation and performance incorporating notions of the body as both a singular entity and a being of multiplicity and fragmentation. I question whether the body can be thought of as a unit of containment and representative of a unified whole or whether this unity is an illusion that is exposed through the aural porosity displayed and the process of multiplication it is subjected to. I examine whether in this state of multiplicity a reconstitution of the initial unity can be achieved via the agency of an outside force, the interaction of the visitors to the installation. Out of this research arises questioning of a shared negotiation of what it is to be completed that draws to the fore a relational understanding of collectivity and community. Yet the question still remains, within this sense of completion, are we ever really complete? What I think completes me may be too unidentifiable to stand for a 'me' at all.
