Scores for Carolyn, 2019
HD video: open captions, slowed sound
11 min 28 sec

“Scores for Carolyn” is a short open captioned video playlist of instructional scores for care with two or more people. Named for (and to) our friend--the artist, Carolyn Lazard--the piece intentionally blurs roles of care provider and receiver; it is accompanied by slowed slurred sound that reads the video’s captions as they appear on screen. The piece is to be shown on a flat screen monitor with headphones, installed low on the wall, meeting the floor at a tilt or lean.
