Entitled Measuring Social Distancing, this spoken-word / noise montage by GX Jupitter-Larsen was partly done as a response to the COVID‑19 pandemic. The collage suggests instructions for a performance piece that people themselves can do. Various voices, speaking in different languages, advise people to kick a ruler as they walk. This performance can be enacted by anyone anywhere.
