An Hour of Infinity
An Hour of Infinity is a site-specific performance and installation event which took place at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology at the University of Michigan on 23 March 2012.
Eight drawing performers, two musicians, and two surround sound installations occupied the museum for exactly one hour. The drawing performers created imperfect drawings of symbols for the concept of infinity using a deliberately difficult process of dangling a pencil above a sheet of paper on the floor, while the two musicians used objects inside the museum as graphic scores from which to perform improvised music. Finally, the two surround sound installations used recordings of sounds from the museum and its archives as source material, moving sound around in circular motions which echoed the drawings being made.
