Homage to Two Fridas is a performance in which the artist/performer joins a computer through her heartbeats. During the action the artist remains seated on a bench with all her sense organs covered, and her chest tied to a microphone that amplifies her heart beatings. Simultaneously, a computer captures those heart sounds and plays them in a cow’s heart that the artist holds with her hands.
