Emission found its origin in three performances which I wrote between 1988 and 1991. In their original form, the performances dealt with sex, romance, and communication technologies. The video elaborates upon these themes to speak of how human beings exist in a margin between nature and technology, and works towards confounding any simplified analysis of this worn-out duality. Structurally speaking, Emission comprises eight episodes which are grouped into three acts.’ The first of these deals with technology and language; the second implies a breakdown of language and a movement towards being animal’; the third envisions a confrontation with our animal nature, yet with an ultimate resignation to keep talking’ and remain human.
