BALL - video still

The installation BALL consists of a looped video of a 40 minute performance deflating a 7 foot beach ball while the modular synth composer Daryl Groetsch improvises. Blown up into the window with the video monitor is Ball itself. The performance was originally slotted for the show "Princess Dies: The Crowning" produced by Experimental Half Hour for Portland Community Media airing mid-April.
