VOLUMES: How we Touch the Light (excerpt)
Edited performance documentation of "How We Touch the Light"
Presented at Hesse Flatow in Chelsea NYC in March 2022.

  VOLUMES, initiated in 2019, is an ongoing collaboration between multimedia artist and musician Anna Oxygen (aka Anna Huff) and sculptor Fawn Krieger.  

In conjunction with Krieger’s exhibition, "Mouth of the Cave," on view at HESSE FLATOW (February 18 - March 19, 2022), Anna 3D scanned Fawn's sculptures, and integrated them as set, protagonists and active collaborators in a live and simultaneously mediated musical performance on Saturday, March 12, 2022

Anna performs live voice, sound and choreography using a green screen set simultaneously fed to a viewable screen. Bodies in 3D space appear as architecture and media artifact along side the sculptures. Fawn creates all wearables, costumes, soft and hard - pixelated and materialized sculptures. A middle aged woman's body becomes and artifact stuck in time.

The collaboration is a slow correspondence through objects, sound and group performance, with an emphasis on how live bodies and voice engage with sculptural forms and collaborative shape making. Oxygen and Krieger populate their landscapes of scanned sculptures, and bodies made up of pixels, and inevitably contemplate the potential of speculative world building in multidimensional, high frequency space.
