[ factory ] a long rope

A living score asks you if you’re interested in realizing a work she’s the archive to.
This video is my yes.

[factory] is a proposal for collaborative performance action(s).
This video realization–“[factory] a long rope”– was created by me and  features Mira Benjamin performing sections of her own realization of [factory]. She would normally do this in live performance settings so working on this video with me was a deviation from that too.

[factory] began as a set of 22 texts written by Luke Nickel. These texts—or verbal scores—were linked by a geographical map, with each text representing an individual conceptual area or room. Luke and Mira Benjamin (the original performer) agreed upon a risky proposal: she would read the texts only once and then delete them, allowing the work to exist solely in her memory and inviting forgettings and linguistic permutations to infect the ephemeral score-object itself. Mira is now the living score for the work, voluntarily responsible for its transferral, transformation and translation.

pocket zentai

I’ve been a fan of Ingrid Mouth‘s work for about a year now, and have made a few other works based on her during that time. This is the latest, which I have based off of her brilliant video, The dance of the zentai (seen below):

And here’s the toy (!)

1zentai accessories
I made the wig and banana as removable accessories…just like in the video :)
While the figure is painted with enamel, the accessories have the yellow pigment mixed right into the resin before it sets, so they are yellow through and through.

2zentai front no wig
Each one is slightly different.

3zentai front
The wig snaps on in the most satisfying way. I sculpted the master on a figure to ensure the hair imprinted itself on the inside.

4zentai back
nice butt

zentai armiture
I made a simple armature out of aluminium foil to start out with…

zentai sculp complete
and sculpted her out of Sculpy (Original Super Sculpey to be exact). I watched Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on non-stop loop during the entire process. Sometimes a movie gets real sticky when I’m making something.

zentai mold
Then I made the 2 part silicone mould (here is the top half of the mould / about to pour the bottom half). There is absolutely a better way to have done this than the way I did.  The way I designed it, I have to pour the resin through channels at each knee and chin…..but I’m new to this (this is my second figure) and couldn’t wrap my head around doing it another way. I think I have to make a 3 part mould to accommodate all the planes (ie the bent legs). In the end it worked ok enough though.

zentai mould
The channels at the knees and chin that I rigged to release air bubbles and to pour through.

zentai cleaning
I have to fill in some air bubbles at the knees and fingers with milliput, and sand them down because of the errors in my mould making.

[These are not for sale. I give them away willy-nilly.]

This post just kinda….ends.

February 7, 2015 – Everything. Everything at Once. Once. (3).
This video is one of a set of 4 videos total, for the third iteration in the Everything. Everything at Once. Once. series. That’s too many numbers and references to numbers to make sense, isn’t it? I mean this…
Everything. Everything at once. Once. (has 3 videos)
Everything. Everything at once. Once. (2) (has 4 videos)
Everything. Everything at once. Once. (3) (has 4 videos, which includes the one shown below). My role in this vid differs from others since the camera is static. Have a look at the thoughtful and thorough blog post Rod made about our process and thinking behind this work.
