PIECES FOR PERFORMER(S) AND EXTRATERRESTRIAL ENTITIES

Using

handmade abaca paper, laser etched text

Year

2017

These works are from an ongoing series that create possible “event scores” for people here on earth and extraterrestrial entities out there. In this case, “extraterrestrial” refers merely to anything of the surface of the earth (extra-terrestrial). These scores are all possible—albeit challenging—performances that could be enacted between humans and rockets, satellites, space probes, or extraterrestrial beings. I laser etched the scores onto 12“x18” sheets of translucent handmade abaca paper.
