Ghost Quarters


My ninth work with Tess de Quincey, this performance installation is based on the writing of Thomas de Quincey
(Confessions of an English Opium Eater). This work has a programmed avoidance of cognitive structure though there is a sensory framing of Tess' four mind states; outside, internal hallucinatory, murder and vortex. Ian Stevenson's sound is randomized on Max making quotes from the text lingering and constantly in flux. Two 6000 lumens projectors, side on in 16:9 are pointing towards a central labyrinth of tule. Mixed live on two Numark Arkaos mixers.
