Ex Files (2017) is a multimedia performance about the evolving shapes of thought forms through the dissolution of romantic relationships. Elements of the work include a 2 channel video projection, live electronic soundscape, soliloquy, and creation of a labyrinth. The piece presents relationship “evidence” in the form of stream-of-consciousness journal entries and written correspondences with exes over the span of 5 years. The writings, dramatically recited during the performance, represent negative thought loops that lead to cognitive disorientation.
