OKO merges sound, body centered performance and video to talk about humanity in relation to the natural world. Performance, sound, video and installation individually are not enough to convey the troubled relationship humans have to nature. Alone these media have limited power, but combined, they can become a force that envelops the viewer within the performance. OKO is an attempt to create an enveloping environment of sound, sight and body. The voice tears out of the performer's mouth, the muscles spasm and contort. The video penetrates the eyes of the audience the sound stuns them. The viewer is pried open by the stimuli, they have no choice but to be receptive.
