Création de résistance de l’air
Création de résistance de l’air David Michaud, La Bande Vidéo (2001)

Deleuze said that “to create is to resist!” Avatar resisted by putting together a collective sound performance on air resistance during La Bande Vidéo’s Création de résistance event.

Deleuze said that “to create is to resist!” Avatar resisted by putting together a collective sound performance on air resistance during La Bande Vidéo’s Création de résistance event.

La Bande Vidéo asked some 40 artists to produce a video as an exquisite corpse. Avatar asked David Michaud to provide the soundtrack.

The exquisite corpse was recorded on minidisks, which were placed in brown paper bags, each with a straw sticking out and sealed with a sticker marked, “Wait for the signal.” Bags were given out free to the audience. On the signal, audience members blew into their straws until the bags burst, freeing the precious minidisks. The performance couldn’t have been more collective.
