Amplified Rubble is a typology of performance that involves burying microphones within building remnants and moving sensitively upon the amplified surface. The work deals with relations between public and private space, as the legality of inhabiting the material itself is questionable, as well as the fact that the once inhabitable building now shields itself and is no longer able to be accessed.
The embedded microphones act as a proxy for the ear and, as a result, the entire body, allowing for an inhabitation of the demolished structure. The performance attempts to display how the temporal occupation of the deconstructed building’s interior mass influences the performer’s way of inhabiting its debris.
