2 women join in the spiritual embrace of Yogasutra to celebrate the coming of the 2012 Mayan Apocalypse. They follow the commands of a sensory environment of light, sound, digital imagery, and kinetic sculpture that is manipulated by 2 voyeur controllers. The performers beckon demonic spirits as they reach deeper into an alternate reality. What transgresses is recorded by web cameras affixed to the women’s heads and streamed live to the online video chat community, Tinychat.
