Case Studies: Spinner-ing / Emmy Hennings, Tears (I, writing) / Cixous, Clouds (or sickness) /Virginia Woolf, and Decreation / Simone Weil in collaboration with Vanessa Disler, activated curtain titled Silk Clock, hand painted carpet, cassette tape player, synthesizer, mixing console, two microphones, paper, paint, baby blue jean tuxedos, white nurse sneakers, 20 minutes, 2013. Case Studies and Silk Clock is a reflection on figures such as performer and poet Emmy Hennings (1885-1948) and singer Karen Carpenter (1950-1983). The script had been previously recorded and was played from a cassette. Music composed of samples and analogue synth tones were mixed in and out of the reading. Each case study was a collage of quotations, confessions, poems and correspondence thinking through feminism and decreation.
