Yellow is a collision between Live Performance Art and Film. How do you explore Live Performance Art with Film? Cahill and Coogan have, for the past number of years, worked together recording Live Performances from the Visual Arts. (Seven Steps for the Irish Museum of Modern Art and Accumulator for VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art). It is out of these experiences they began to explore methods of doing justice to what they see as fundemental elements of Live Performance; duration, and the evolution of the physical experience of the performer. To this end Cahill constructed a rig for his camera that allowed freedom of movement with the camera and to record each four hour live performance in one take. Cahill became the seventh performer in the project, reacting to the live performance in an, immediate, embodied way.
