Performance and Site Specific Installation
Location: Warehouse in Mascot, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Performance by Anna Sabiel. Similar in form to her "Tensile ii" performance at the Earwitness event Body & Sound on 24 November 1994.

Anna Sabiel uses her body to “sound” the interior space of buildings. In a harness connected by piano wires through empty drums to the building’s structure, she plays the space, riding it to emit subtle swaying rhythms, tipping the resonant drums which sometimes contain fluid. Her body is caught in the act of sounding the externalised physical space, that of the room, while investigating her own body’s interior spatial memory as she rides through the changing positions she creates - a virtual transducer of the potential sounds in the environment.
