Traces (2023)

Desktop Performance, Livestream, OBS Studio
Livestreamed on twitch (March 9th, 2023)

Traces leverages the immediacy and shared presence inherent in the livestream performance formats to heighten the audience’s sense of being truly present in the moment. Through reassembling fragments extracted from different segments of a day and projecting coordinating imagery onto the functionality of objects, Traces digs into the dissected components that collectively shape our lives. This performance unfolds as live footage and pre-recorded videos are interwoven, guiding the viewers into a labyrinth of intentional disorientation and fostering an atmosphere of confusion. Meanwhile, it acts as multiple channels providing glimpses into the concurrent reality and tasks perpetually pursuing us in pursuit of a ‘more efficient’ equilibrium.
