Rhythm Nation : 3 Movements 3 Hours, 2015

Endurance Performance

Rhythm Nation is an act of perpetual kinetic motion that examines the inability to move forward in diverse sectors of The three major components of this act consist of three parts (3 movements): The rock drummer, a chain smoker and a stationary bike exerciser. The march. Allegorically, capturing connotations of life in urbanity. The chain smoker depicts time filling habits that could lead us from pleasure to tragedy. The stationary bike exerciser figures into a certain compulsive-obsessive category, asking how fixated our society is with the idea of becoming perfect specimens willing to race like hamsters on a bicycle going nowhere, or possibly consider surgical procedures. This persistent immobile-motion is reflective of the non-progressive aspects of our culture.
