liners performance -- May 10, 2007


The "liners" performance by Zach Lieberman and Theo Watson revolves around a simple graphical idea: a line which starts and never ends. The performance mixes different video clips that people have sent them of lines being drawn, along with live content, in order to tell the story of a seamless line which never ends. The two performers use custom software to seemlessly mix together a large series of live and pre-recorded linear expression into a ceaseless, evolving, whimsical landscape, in which one line leads to the next. From a line of simple pixels, to a hand drawn line, to a horizon line, to a line of text, the performance is not at all about getting to a final destination, but completely about the delight of traveling.
