A Sort of Joy (Thousands of Exhausted Things)
A collaboration between Elevator Repair Service Theater and The Office For Creative Research. Using MoMA’s collections database of 123,951 items, the two companies created a performance script that was delivered to actors electronically as they roamed throughout the second floor galleries of the museum. The artists undertook a series of computational analyses on the collections data, classifying artwork titles, for example, in terms of their grammatical construction, lexicon, or phrasing. For reference, Gavin Price first appears at 00:36.
