Flying Heartbeats
Performances: Anchorage, Alaska

This piece, created in collaboration with Otto Piene, is similar in spirit to Janney’s Heartbeat. In this work, a dancer wearing the Heartbeat transmitter is lifted into the sky, harnessed to a sculptural arrangement of balloons. The act of flight triggers a soundtrack of varying heartbeats projected out over the crowd below.
