ABOVE: Classic "Wall Stall " executed in a Falling Style Shannon Technique 2010 photo : BCThe basic trick sequence involved in the "Wall Stall" from Shannon Technique is to plant the vertical
oriented crutch ahead of your body and lift into it as you are also dropping the horizontal crutch down.
Holding onto the horizontal crutch with your armpit tightly is essential because it will be bearing weight
ABOVE: Still from BENCH, intersection of GRAND and WOOSTER, MANHATTAN NYC JULY 2008. I chose this as a still because it shares in one frame the public gaze ( as embodied in the driver ) and a reflection on the surface of the car of my video capture and mobility apparatus.
While I was editing a new version of my 2008 video and performance work "Bench" today I realized I might want to share more what is happening in my creative work even if it is a small thing. This BENCH piece I have featured here previously and have installed as an "in-the-round" work. Now I am recreating an HD single screen composite of the video. I want this edit to be seen especially as it includes a new landscape arrangement of the six channels that pulls all the screens in one continuous line. I enjoy this aspect of the video because it ties together front and rear more intuitively. This work may be included in a museum group show which I will not disclose yet until confirmed. Its deadline time.
