Performance: December 18, 2017
I asked my friends on Facebook what their favorite TV shows as a child were. I took 36 random shows and created a schedule for the Klanghaus that evening. The event was Lighthaus (pieces incorporating light).
I will find the schedule I printed and laminated. I used one of the venue’s couches and set my overhead projector on the coffee table and aimed it at one of Z-Space’s black curtains.
People would come over and I’d pass them the katv guide and they would look at what time it was and what shows are “playing.” They asked about how to change the channel. I told them you can just tell me. I brought with me transparencies of images from the different shows and put them on the projector when the channel was requested.
I used my portable speaker and iphone to play sound clips from the corresponding shows. I created playlists organized by timeslot.
I liked the channel “KATV” where I had three live shows: Look at My Doilies! (I brought doilies to layer on the projector.); Words are Fun! (I wrote whatever words on transparencies); Joy of Iron Filings (I brought a bar magnet and iron filings and a particle tray–read: ferrero rocher has a lovely plastic tray).
I should totally get over my nerves and document performances I’m doing while I’m doing them. I wish I had a pic to show how cool this looks.
