This work is a performative distillation of energy. Using homemade devices that convert vibration into electrical current, I have stored various durational performative gestures into batteries. Each battery contains a different visceral procedure, as indicated by the labels on the batteries themselves.

The amount of electricity that these gestures create is relatively small. It is my hope, however, that these objects will in some way contain the spirit of the actions that produced them, and that the use of this energy will facilitate some transference of that spirit.
