"Metronome" at the Satellite Art Fair
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Miriam Parker '97 will be preforming new work at The Ocean Terrace Hotel in Miami Beach. Metronome is a performance with video projection and installation questioning proximity, time, and bondage in response to the current geopolitical environment. Time as it relates to the experience of trauma is often cyclical and compounding. As a visceral experience first hand, bearing witness to the global traumas is always mediated through content. The relationship becomes proximal. The witness is removed. We regularly witness death, but at what point is it our responsibility? With the endless stream of content, news, and call to witnessing, it's easy to become numb. The theme of proximity becomes central as the performer interacts with the virtual representation, or the video projection, and she calls for a movement beyond just witnessing.
