microwave~d performance
single performance duration: 2'30''
total performance duration: 3 hours
performer: Zhaoyue Fan, Kenneth Lin, Milena Schircks, Yui Yamamoto
In the performance, visitors experience the intense transformation of being cooked. During 2 minutes of microwaving, a visitor is surrounded by the gaze of four performers, strong LED lights, moving images and high-pitched sounds in front of a sacred microwave-shrine. The feeling of being cooked when leaving the microwave is guaranteed.
