Blow-Up is a performance installation using multi-channel soundscape, five screen video projections, and one performer.
Inspired by Julio Cortazar’s short story and the infinitely iterating Penrose patterns, Blow-Up holds the fractured linearity of a recalled life, the desire to make sense of our lives and of nature, against the foil of perfect abstract models. It prompts the viewer to question the frame of their perspective and dive into the space between the lines.
Presented at Back Away Slowly at The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts June 19-20.
Devised, created, and performed collaboratively by Nancy Tam and Daniel O’Shea.
Sound Design by Nancy Tam, projection conceived by Nancy Tam, projection design by Daniel O’Shea. Video documentation by Daniel O’Shea.
