flotation tank for Glassolalia (drawing Mike Tyler 1999)
Visitors enter the space…a light glows inside a clear cylindrical tank in the middle of the room…the tank is filled with liquid and a person is lying on their back, suspended in the solution; floating with a gauze over the eyes…

This is the second performance where Tyler explores disturbing voice dynamics and memory traces.
