Anyone who has ever watched professional wrestling knows one thing: at some point during the event, a folding chair will enter the ring. A foreign object is a term within professional wrestling for an object that is introduced into the wrestling match. How has something that normally supports the body made a transition into something else; a weapon? And just like in professional wrestling what transit does an object make when they are brought into an art arena?
Whilst browsing the internet I stumbled across an intriguing theremin player from Mississippi USA who offers theremin lessons via Skype. The distance between the tutor, instrument(s) and myself I consider an interesting thought. The theremin is the only musical instrument you play without touching although it does rely on physical presence of the body to voice its sound. It uses capacitive sensing just like modern day mobile phones and has a parallel to Wi-Fi that also works at the hand of proximity. A work regarding electronic presence, the material and the immaterial body and our movement between these two.
