cell foam threshhole
cell foam threshhole is a solo performance made for artist run spaces and alternative venues. Formed around the idea that the body is holographic, the performer shows up as text as voice as dance as image and as meme. The work develops out of Yim’s interests in somatic research, queer intersectionalities and science fiction. cell foam threshhole composes live in a paradoxical state of autonomously generated pleasure of which remains surveilled, creating the grounds for a body to figure out how to work with the shadows away from clear site.
