Gesture Devices

Gesture Devices is a series of site-specific installations made in collaboration with the School of Making Thinking. I began this project by collecting impressions of home from each of the fellow residents. I translated these memories into various installations situated in and around the grounds of the residency. Many of the installations included a performance score for one or more participants. The work was presented for 48 hours after distributing copies of a hand-drawn map showing the location and number of participants needed for each device.
