Performance installation featured in the film:
"Heloise's Bird" with Angelika Festa at Franklin Furnace, NYC, 1985.

"... the original intention seems different , seems changed ... "

The film (produced in 1998) is made from documentary footage I recorded of a 24 hour installation performance. It reconstructs from my viewpoint what it was lik to participate as a partner in this event and evokes a sense of the endurance and physical dependence that evolved between the the two of us over the long night.

Original footage was shot in super 8 and blown up to 16mm on an optical printer.
Performers: Angelika Festa, E.Jay Sims, live bunny
