"The Untitled Trilogy" - 2009 - 2010 from David F. M. Hanes on Vimeo.

"The Untitled Trilogy" is a series of performance works that took place on three different occasions between the years of 2009 and 2010. The Trilogy attempts to personalize the life of a scattered alter-ego that is represented through story, junked-gesture, spoken word, viewer intrusion, and object use. Characters in the story address issues of identity assertion, spacial limitation, infinite convergence, and trembling edges of finitude. This video is a document of the final time I performed the Trilogy during an event with Baltimore artist DJ DOGDICK at the Whitehouse in Toronto Canada.


Using a method of non-linear content abstraction, I created a one-of-a-kind booklet that is made up of images and texts. I would use the booklet as a reference to help dictate the situations, actions and narrative of the performance. I would present the booklet as a "Hyper-Linking Non-Linear (HLNL) Booklet" that I see as a form of post-performance sculpture.

The performances are at times confused, immediate, absurd, and hostile... fast hybrid thinking is at work.
