Action Through Non Action is a video performance where the artist uses his body as an interfering sensor to capture the rhythm caused by its presence in a crowd, by measuring the frequency of passerby collisions.
The performer stands still in the middle of a crowd in the most densely populated district in Hong
Kong. The artist performs no action, even so interaction cannot be avoided, his presence creates an interference in the normal ﬂow of the crowd. The individuals change their paths, the presence of the performer originates multiple chain reactions. The touches of the elements of the crowd in the performer’s both arms are recorded through the use of several contact microphones connected to a recorder and a headphone set. The headphones isolate the performer’s audition, he can only listen to the sound of people touching him.The recorded data originates a score that interferes with the video playback. The video presented consists on the performance interference in its own documentation.
