Jen Kutler + Rebecca Ruth Borrer


Ob(ject)struct is an AV performance collaboration between Rebecca Ruth Borrer and Jen Kutler which explores the ways in which bodies and electronics interface, depend on, and ignore each other. The piece examines the dwindling separation between electronics and people with electro-human intimacy and emotional/electrical connection.

Using hand made electronic interfaces, audio and video are generated and manipulated by sharing water, discerning speech and electro-human sex and uses digital media to map the liminal spaces surrounding the deep and frequent emotional exchanges between heart and tech.

Jen Kutler is a sound based performer, sculptor and maker. She modifies found objects that are cultural signifiers of power, gender, queerness and intimacy to create atypical instruments. Her performances feature many of her instruments incorporated with immersive field recordings to explore common and discrepant experiences of familiar sound environments.

Rebecca Borrer is a multimedia artist, composer and writer. Her work focuses on liminal spaces that exist between definitions and are therefore undefined. She currently lives in Hudson, NY.
