16' x 16' Lake Bed, 125 Gallons of Water, Door-Stoppers, Contact Microphones, Spot Lights, Speakers

Lake is a performance created for the No Holds Performance Series, a group of shows curated for the University of Minnesota's Regis Center for Art performance space. A 16' x 16' lake takes up the middle of a dark room. At the edge of the lake, the performer plays upon door-stopper springs that touch the surface as they are sprung. Behind each spring is a contact microphone that collects these vibrations and sends them throughout the surrounding speaker system. Three spot lights are aimed at the lake, allowing the ripples to be reflected throughout the room.
