GlitchenSkypen (Performance Art by Mark Amerika and Norie Neumark)

My recent performance art project with sound artist Norie Neumark is GlitchenSkypen.

Norie was on a flight from SFO to JFK and had an Internet connection on the plane and so thought it would be a good time to Skype.

When her call came in, I nestled my iPhone into the groove of my laptop that divides the screen from its cover and proceeded to play.

The end result is what you hear here.

Did I mention that Norie is also the co-author of the anthology of art writings entitled At a Distance?

Who better to conduct what is perhaps the first performance art Skype session from a plane, then Norie herself?
