" echorality " [Silencing Vanessa Place]

Four minutes and thirty-three seconds of silence culled from various Vanessa Place performances found on Vimeo (specifically, her readings at INSTAL 10, Nov 2010; the Greenwich Cross-Genre Festival, July 2010; the Renaissance Society, December 2011; and at Galerie Martine Aboucaya, September 2010). All of Place’s speech is erased, leaving only pauses, the noisy intervals between individual poems, and other inframince spaces. (The performed silence of Place’s own erasure piece, "Gone With the Wind by Vanessa Place", is excluded).
