On Wednesday, 9th December, 2009 there occurred
in The Vaults, Newhall Hill, Birmingham...

A Sparky presentation in association with Graft
An instance of Performance Architecture:
Being A Building In Birmingham

In the first part of the performance, the artist stands in an alcove, arching over a thoroughfare, blending in with the fabric of the building. A live video feed is projected in another alcove, and in another part of the building, an audio loop of sounds made by the building is played. The performance thus permeates numerous parts of the building.

In the second part of the performance, the sound and video loops continue while the artist supports a brick in various different ways, thus fulfilling the physical function of the building.
