Touch Music is an installation-score which, through textual prompts, creates an internalized animation that reacts to and touches physical objects.
Text, from left to right:
Press fingernail hard against your hand.
Imagine the pressure is the size and shape of this rock.
1. Caress this cotton affectionately, as if it is part of someone you intimately desire
2. Pinch it slowly without emotion
3. Repeat 1 – 2
A line connects your nostrils to inside these bottles
You breathe, lines undulate and fold in on themselves
Press finger along line
Consider how you benefit from other peoples’ oppression
Move edges of plastic dish along the edge of the circle and think about the last time you were in a tight space
and liked it
Pick up this lightbulb
Hold it in your hands
Watch the filament
An invisible sheet is hovering 3 meters above
It will fall slowly onto this brick, covering it entirely
Hold this knowledge without talking about it
Look out this window
Hold in your mind the shape of the impulse to check your phone
