Critical Mass, 2010-2013

A live remake of the experimental film Critrical Mass (Hollis Frampton, 1971). In the original, 16mm footage of a couple’s explosive argument is copied, cut into snippets and re-assembled. In the remake, two performers advance the looping narrative syllable by syllable and cut for cut. Inisitally staged as a live perfornance from 2010 to 2013, at venues including the Whitney, Hammer Museum, LAXART, MoMA, Tanks at Tate Modern, Vancouver Art Gallery and Walker Art Center, the work now exists as a 25-minute single take video.
