Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York, NY, O me! O life! 2015 [SFTV S02 E04]

By Samuel Jablon

Participants: Yuko Otomo, Steve Dalachinsky, Bob Holman, Sophie Malleret, Di Fang, Andrew Telichan

This performance highlighted the shared experience of navigating NYC. This poetry was the language of architecture, it was created from words that literally covered sides of buildings, filled magazines and lined subways. The video was created from found footage of NYC. The sound was created from recordings done in Times Square that were manipulated so voices became static. The performance was an experiment with poetry and its uselessness.
