Uranus Direct, a ceremonial performance and video installation, is the second installment of The House of ia's 15 moons project.
What you are seeing/hearing above, is documentation from both the audio and video segments of the Performance/Installation as seen during Salta's PPP @ Transmission Gallery in Oakland, CA, December of 2013. The original performance lasted approximately 25 minutes and is, through text, documented in task based fashion below.
*Note that in witnessing Uranus Direct through documentation there are points where the experience lends itself solely to audio happenings which, in its live rendition, was accompanied by body based performative action.
