☟Stayin’ Alive☟

Interactive karaoke performance, 2020

Stayin’ Alive was a parasitic intervention on another artwork, Nice Apocalypse by Jesse Siegel and David Ghelli Santuliana. Humans were offered the chance to duet with a tardigrade; an opportunity to embrace karaoke-as-ritual to ward off their upcoming extinction. Like garlic to a vampire, proclamations of survival travelled from mouth to microphone. After all, an extinction without singing is not an extinction worth having.
