Lumenelectric Norvegicus, 2006

Performance with circuitry, contact microphones, rubber and gelatin.

A performer recites first person narratives of medical experiences. Contact microphones attached to the performer's body trigger AC switches, which send electrical current through gelatin filled rubber rats. As the gelatin is electrified, sodium in the gelatin burns and and sparks.
