The Blind Man
I will create a 'slide show' by The Blind Man (Der Blinde) who
obsessively travels to document images without acknowledging.
Images without notions. Everything is in rectangular shape.
They signify 'memory never consumed' which is like 'empty memory', however, it is not the same if you'd say 'no memory'.
His full of 'the memory' will actually be consumed by 'others' (invitees to his 'slide show').
He has whole other memory (which he never consciously collect) which will never sync with his 'empty memory' (which he is obsessed to collect.)
You are invited to consume 'the memory'. Welcome to the 'slide show'!

"Art of Disappearance" continues. - Based in Brooklyn, New York, sound artist, composer, core member of SHARE(http://share.dj), o.blaat (keiko uenishi) is known for creating various interactive audio environments such as 'beat piece (with Ping-Pong game)', 'audio coat check', 'coupier', 'fillip'.
All of which were resulted from her ceaseless pursuits of ways to erase performer's presence and ultimately alter listening situation.
