"Lunar Performances: Creating an Architecture of Text in Time
Disrupting Pharoah's Dream: Devouring Mother
December 6th, 2002
On December 6th, 2002, my ongoing project Lunar Performances celebrated the new moon, and the arrival of the new lunar month of TEVET. This event was sponsored by New York University?s Department of Arts Technologies and took place at the NYU Television Center. It was a first INTERNET 2 exploration for Torn Textbooks, in collaboration with artists Janet Davidson-Hues and Maria Velasco of the University of Kansas.
Lunar Performances are based on 6,000-year-old biblical narratives. They are then fragmented and re- structured under an umbrella of contemporary stories, such as fairy-tales, newspaper-clippings and biographic writings. For this performance, we wanted to explore new possibilities for language suspended in virtual space. What kind of narratives might be possible through the absence and displacement of the body?"
