Performance artist Karen Christopher PO'85 presents "Control Signal":
"Control Signal" explores invisible influences and the inexplicable connections we feel but fail to acknowledge. It explores our irresistible urge to impose our will upon our immediate surroundings; upon nature. We are tied to each other, to objects we hold dear, to ideas. Through sound textures, spoken text, and actions that build visual statements, two people amble, dance, and tremble through a series of ideas about invisible influences. We send a ripple with a facial expression. We move the air with our hands. We lean. We push. We fall silent. We make a plea. And, in order to bridge the internal and the external, in order to undermine stable forms, in order to show the effects of invisible forces, we introduce an uncontrollable vibration.
