San Francisco Art Institute Performance (2003)

The exhibition opened with Alison Knowles performing with her paper instruments. This performance was followed by some classic Fluxus pieces performed within a projected light environment, a video of her papers made by George Quasha titled "Pulp Friction". As well, her workshop students presented their own gallery of art objects titled "Secrets of Ordinary Things". The picture on the left was taken from the 2003 San Francisco Chronicle article "Peeling the layers of an artwork with music" by Kenneth Baker. The article is available upon request.

In "Pulp Friction", a video by George Quasha, Alison Knowles plays music reading a score made of onion skins pressed between two pieces of plastic wrap projected against the video piece.
