New York–based artist Brody Condon (b. Mexico, 1974) introduces his Without Sun (2006), a video compilation of “found performances”—online videos of people who recorded themselves while having a psychedelic experience. The screening is followed by a live reenactment of these drug-induced journeys, with an actor mimicking the voices and a dancer matching the body movements. Condon will also discuss Case, his upcoming performance adaptation of William Gibson’s classic cyberpunk novel Neuromancer (1984), which was commissioned by Rhizome and premieres at the New Museum as part of Performa 09. Copresented with Performa 09, with special thanks to Lana Wilson.
