The Set Speaks is a two-month continuous live stream featuring seven artist-groups who will produce week-long performances from a 641 square foot studio in Chicago. Provided with 24/7 access, four cameras, a video switcher, a computer and a connection to the internet, each group will create their own 168-hour live, durational work. Borrowing from the ubiquitous forms of nature cams and security feeds, the live broadcasts will be equal parts moving image works and portraits of the artists at play, rest, rehearsal, and performance. Taking shape and enduring alongside the viewers’ real-times, the interests and subjectivities embedded in the works will amount to seven takes on simultaneity. Stop-by, call-in, and watch: YYYYMMDD, #NewGlobalMatriarchy, 2 Queens in a Kitchen, soap operas, still LIVEs, and more.
