The guests of this installation gallery will approach a glass window that separates them from a small, dark room, where two individuals stand motionless among a table, chair and couch. On the spectator side of the window is a Control Panel that features five buttons and a reset switch. This control panel is rested atop a table. The red buttons beg to be pushed, and upon pushing any button, an audio command will play, accompanied by the illumination of one of five lightbulbs hanging behind the performers. The lightbulbs will feature gelled lampshades,(white, blue, red, green, yellow) and each lightbulb coincides with a specific audio clip as well as the particular button that triggers both the illumination and the audio clip simultaneously. Each button features a specific audio command, audible to the spectator. The commands are then acted out by the two performers in the small living room type of setting. The commands are as follows: "Get Down". "Make me Laugh", "Get to Work", "Ponder", "Eat". The reset switch interrupts any audio clip and returns the given light to a non-illuminated state, signaling the performers to return to their original positions.
The idea behind this project is to investigate how humans are an extension of technology, and how an audience member may interact with both live performance as well as a pre-programmed system of sound and light.
