Sound installation, 55 mins

During a regular morning, from the point of waking up until leaving home, a person recorded a detailed commentary of her actions. The recording was used as a script in order to attempt to repeat these morning routines as closely as possible to what could be heard on the track. With the initial comments in headphones, the person then attempted to copy the same morning routine ten mornings in a row, until it became it precise choreographic pattern of movement, where tea-sipping and turning the pages of a newspaper is adjusted down to the very second. The sound of each morning was recorded and the work was presented as a sound installation, where all the sounds of the ten mornings were played simultaneously out of ten separate speakers.
