Actuation (performance/installation) of burned out cars, with audio of male and female voices, naming the dead, from the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
The Arches, where the Actuation (performance/ installation) took place, was saturated with the aroma of the recently burned out cars. Lighting in the space was slowly dimmed and gently increased, in repeated sequence, to evoke similitude to human in-breath and out-breath, while naming the dead was voiced throughout. Atmosphere in the Arches was charged, for the four day duration.
