Description
Typewritten and handwritten narration possibly for Cha's video performance "Perte Loss.
Perte Loss" was Cha's entry to the Video Free America video performance series, 1979. Cha withdrew her entry due to her disagreement with the organization of the series. "Perte Loss" is unfinished. "Perte Loss" includes 2 video monitors and a performer. The performer is "the marker- the one who measures and imprints the images, marks the time'. "This would be conducted through voice on screen, voice off screen narrative and interruptions, through simultaneous activity as projected on the screen". The typewritten and handwritten text is possibly the narration for the performer. See museum# 1992.4.113-116
