onomono performance stills

The word ONOMONO is a palindrome—it can be read forward and back. The video begins and ends with the same visual note. The sound is created using alive-feed into a Kaleidoloop—a recording device that can manipulate speed, pitch and direction. During the performance, I sampled sounds live—some by recording the audience—which I then played back, forward and in reverse at different speeds and pitch to create the soundtrack.

ONOMONO depicts a circle of destruction. It captures the ailments of our society through various archival footage, such as gruesome animal experiments, depression-era economic graphics, schizophrenia and OCD patients. this is what happens when you soak up the coming insurrection.

This experiment was preformed at Cristin Tierney gallery NY, on Dec 17, 2011. It was a collaboration with two of my friends—Jeremy C. Hansen and Timothy Korn.
