I hand drew each frame of the video documentation from the performance I’m Fine performed at Le Lieu, centre en art actuel in Québec, Canada. The performance documentation that I animated was shot by Patrick Dubé. It took me approximately three hours to animate five seconds. The documentation is 24 frames per second and is 8 minutes and 45 seconds long, a total of 507 seconds, and 12,168 drawings. I am interested in examining why the collective understanding of what defines a contemporary audience or performer continues to shift and blur. This entails a consideration of the multiple attempts throughout history to abolish the separation of performer and audience. To confront the residue of trauma, you must be willing to face insanity. Memories come in waves, never chronologically. I'm Fine reflects the experience of lived trauma.
