The Mine Project / DaDa Spill

    experimental multi-media installation/performance and crowd project

Most of the old cement mines in the hudson valley, ny, usa have been converted into record storage units. Dada spill staged a massive security breach within a lone abandoned mine in rosendale ny in which  900 identity release documents were signed, sealed and compromised by the crowd with the help of interpretive guides.

A black humor look into identity theft and preservation w/ collaborator Kate Hamilton + 30 volunteers, 300 public participants.  The Widow Jane Mine, July 27, 2013.

*paper mining helmets embedded with scraps of newspaper articles about mining disasters and labor disputes provided the primary light for the event in the dark abandoned cement mine

‘Interpretive guides in costume’ helped people with their documents……*the shredder character was the itinerant whistle-blower and bore the weight of data excess in her shingled armor of shredded docs…….*the phishing man unassumingly hooked sensitive material…….*the redocx seamstress altered identity data by sewing shredding docs together at her treadle machine……*the data crafter knit magnetic tape shawl, wore an EM shielding turban, and donned an enormous anti-static skirt……*an  image document facilitator verified and documented……*the crowd shared a banquet of delete cookies ……*and a 2 act intermission play WRENCH, by Elana Greenfield is performed on ladders in the lake
