Man With Mirror (1976/2006)Film performance using a hand-held mirrored screen

This documentation was filmed at a retrospective screening in Montreal.

The
screen is white one side and mirrored the other, and is used by the
performer to either 'catch' the projected image, or reflect it around
the cinema space. The image on film is of the same activity happening
in a sunlit landscape. Visual echoes are set up between the live event
and the recorded one. This performance can include directional sound
aimed at the screen, the movements of which bounce the sound around the
space.
