Zero-crossings (2007)

A site-specific performance amongst Richard Serra’s sculptures, commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. In mathematics, a “zero-crossing” is a point where a graph crosses the horizontal axis (zero value). Inspired by the term and the site’s constant flux of people from USA and Mexico, two dancers slowly collide, representing the two cultures’ interaction at the border. Direction: Alicia Marván. Performance: Alicia Marván and Jessica Radulovich. Duration: 30 minutes.
