Documentation: screen recording of performance app (without spoken word component).
"Weird Object" is a spoken word performance that gets mediated through an app. The performance consists of myself reading a monologue with a moody arc about a fictional object, written out of aggregate data sourced from online customer product reviews. The app was programmed to resemble a speed reading experiment and is read off a laptop or an android phone. A lapse occurs between the moving text and my speech, heightening the anxiety and humor in the narrative.
