    Score For Last Week | 2015

Ongoing series of participatory performances created in collaboration with Sara Dittrich that asks audience members to examine how they individually interpret and experience the moving image. Each audience member received a toy instrument with a unique rule attached to it. The rules collectively create a unique musical score for the silent selection of Youtube videos compiled by Dittrich and Žák. The compilation was sourced and edited using videos which had been uploaded to Youtube the week prior to the performance. A collective interpretation of the compilation was made audible through the sounding of the audience's instruments.
