Nour Mobarak has used her body as an instrument, her voice as a guide, and often technology in a graceful supporting role. For this newly commissioned sound and performance piece Mobarak extends these ideas and methods into new directions. On two consecutive days, Mobarak manipulates sound in the space through her position and movement, turning the empty gallery into a de facto collaborator, an instrument of its own, and a site of improvisation and live experimentation.
