This video-performance was developed during a week of experimentation in the Lab space of the Living Arts of Tulsa, OK, USA.  The video’s are played simultaneously on two separate monitors at the Living Arts of Tulsa and for one week in the show case of De Aanschouw in Rotterdam, March, 2014.  With two identical cameras we did several experiments on positioning both cameras and run them simultaneously during us doing basic actions like moving chairs, tables, or just simply walk.  scheuren & stapelen (tearing & stacking) shows on the left monitor a roll of toilet paper of which the sheets are teared of one by one until the roll is finished and on the right monitor the sheets of toilet paper are being stacked.  Total duration is 21 minutes. The videos don’t need to play in sync.
