Description of the piece:

‘Fridge Logic’ (2011) explores the audience’s relationship with the mediated performer within a media literate culture. The event starts with youtube videos which have been distributed the week before the show, these involve simple tasks for the audience to complete. In a studio setting the audience watch a live-streamed projection of the performance that is taking place behind them. The audience are directly addressed through the camera lens and at times invited to participate.

Olwen; the performer, is attempting to make a movie, following classic narrative structures, referencing other famous movies and their characters. She is having trouble, she doesn’t have the resources she needs. She is not sexy enough, scary enough, entertaining enough. She needs you to believe in her and help her discover the emotive direction needed.

‘Fridge Logic’ takes a humorous and moving journey through bad re-enactment and confessions of a lonely performer with surprising twists.

The set up:

In a studio setting the audience watch a live-streamed projection of the performance that is taking place behind them. The performance is received best in a moderate to large studio space, which allows for the performance to take place behind the seated audience whom watch the majority of the action on a large projected screen. The audience are directly addressed through the camera lens and at times invited to participate. It is an exploration in community and the mediated image.
