repetitive imitation

performance, 2010

The setting consists of a white wall with a screen in front. I start the performance when I set the time for 30 minutes.
The image of me in real time is projected on the screen by the connected laptop. The action I do will be recorded at the same time. After finishing the action I open a new screen with my live image on the laptop and start playing at the same time the first recording and imitate this one. At the same time my imitation is getting recorded. I keep on repeating this until the time is over.
