Performance Art

"DJ Trace-human” is a video interplay of poetry, allegory and soliloquy concerning future humans and identity. Like platitudes of postmodern thought, what the character is saying is incoherent. Albeit, when the image is played to a harmonic mix and animates into a series of repetitious moments, the viewer intuits its value. Directed by BBC filmmaker Christopher Spencer and edited in Los Angeles, Natasha's recitation became AC—an electric current that reverses its direction at regular intervals.

Early BioArt piece the artist sculpted her body into the red clay of Red Rocks amphitheater. The acoustical arena, where Tiesto performed "Elements of Life", was the stage for the silent, short 8mm film "Breaking Away", filmed by Don Yannacito, Film Studies, UC. The mise en scène is a metaphorical breaking away from human constraints while in a dance; her naked flesh was energized, amplified and then attenuated from the early morning sun.

Narrative video “2 Women in B&W”, the spoken words do hold value, yet it is more the emotions of the characters that draw the viewer's attention. As the actors' lines repeat, during each round the behaviors change to infer an alteration of identity. Each identity is dependent on the identity of the other, just as much if not more than she needs herself. Here the "self" is a transitional state of being, arriving at its state of stasis by and through its inability to break away from the cloistered need of the other. Filmed by John Dore of EZTV in West Hollywood, the artist directed and performed the piece which premiered at Women in Video.
