For Music For Gas Station, I toured with ensemBle baBel, an experimental group from Switzerland. As the video artist, I created a series of live Periscope feeds to connect the performances to global audiences in real time.
For the project, we embarked on a drifting road trip in one van to visit gas stations. Responding and interacting with each gas station, we created compositions, recordings, video works, road journals, radio broadcasts and more.
This project was in reference to Ed Ruscha’s 26 gasoline stations, two ten-day tours to visit 26 gas stations. USA (2016) and Europe (2017) and one show in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2018.
