The Blush Machine
multi-media performance installation
in collaboration with Polly Card
14 March - 15 April, 2013
Kiosko Gallery, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia
The Blush Machine explores the circulation of racialized and gendered shame.
The installation consists of three rooms, where visitors are invited to reflect and carry out simple acts and gestures. In the first room, a large projection awaits the audience. In the second a video (3 mins) is shown for individual audience members. In the third room, visitors can leave their thoughts and feelings behind spraying them on a canvas where a face is projected. A collage of voices of Santa Cruzians accompanies the visitors in the third room.
