Performance. Two stethoscopes, two hand counters, two actors, nylon.
During a three hour long durational performance, two figures within a nylon enclosure listen across stethoscopes attempting to sync their heart rates while recording beats with hand held counters. As the heartbeats fall in sync a droning and meditative rhythm of clicking is formed a disturbance or fatigue disrupts the shared experience. This transition results in agitated movements between the performers as they pull each other within the nylon in a mirroring dance as they attempt to assert their individual influences on the coarse of the performance.
Pulse was performed during Eminent Domain at EMP Collective as well as during the Borders, Boundaries, and Barricades performance art review in Baltimore, Maryland.
