patience, handwritten (in German)

“Geduld” written with graphite on a vintage bottle

“Geduld” which translates from the German language into English as patience, is the word I used for my second writing performance in the early 1990s.

In an effort to give more meaning to a single action, I did several sound-performances which consisted of such acoustic writings, using a number of materials, words, phrases and sentences.

The overlapping through repetition of the same, does not only produce melodies and rhythm but reveals sketches, depending on the used materials.

During a period in which we see an alarming decrease of mechanical and hand movement amongst humans, I see it quite fitting to indulge on handwriting, on a day that has been labeled National Handwriting Day.

Feel free to join us on Clubhouse for conversational and performative exchange.
