The Service Room, 2017, installation and web platform, realized as part of Recess’ Session program. A customized countertop includes functional design features—such as sinks, electric stovetop and oven, massage bed, and computer workstation—tailored to facilitate a host of possible communal service exchanges, scheduled through an online scheduling system.
The Service Room: Performance, 2017, Four dancers perform a choreography which responds directly to the surfaces, fixtures, and objects on the 'island.' The performers move in couples, rotating among themselves in exchanges that incorporate typical gestures of domestic and work environments, as well as unexpected movements generated by the diverse facilities’ adjacency.
