Venus Hum

Venus Hum is an imagined performance shown as an installation of artifacts—sculpture, photographs, and a video DVD—that narrates the creation of a performance costume. Interwoven with the sounds of heartbeats, sewing machines, scissors and traditional strains of the tarantella, the work is accompanied by the sound of its own making. Concept, drawings and photographs by Barbara Kilpatrick; sound design and editing by Elise Kermani.
