Renée writes of this performance:
The piece I present will be a continuation of my love affair with video and windows. Having fallen particularly hard for the Darling studio windows where A Month of Sundays takes place, I have already been building a collection of video material featuring them and their transparent/translucent qualities. For this particular Sunday, I intend to put together a site-specific video projection installation that makes use of my already existing collection and gives me an excuse to collect more. And the windows themselves will be the presentation surface for the installation.
