HYMN [red]

running time: 34m 08s

HYMN [red] is an edited version of HYMN [one], which was first shown at the 2005 Brazillian Biennial. The original piece was a telematic performance work broadcast live via webcam from my studio in Baltimore to the gallery in Brazil and others watching remotely online. This edited version was created from the original source video for extended gallery viewing.
