You/Stop/Watch: A Shiva Japam (August 2002; 00:42:26)
A real-time endurance piece about endurance. Formally referencing the CNN talking head + multiple texts video format, this work is structured by the yogic practice of japam, the continued repetition of a mantra that restructures the neurological pathways of the brain in preparation for the experience of death. This japam is dedicated to Shiva, the outsider, the dancer, the yogic ascetic, the destroyer of illusion and so finally the messenger of truth. The soundtrack is Raga Malkaus, played by Prof. Roy Choudhury (Nataraj Music, Düsseldorf).
