This work makes a very private experience collective. Presented in the ground floor level windows of 36th street (4 -11 x 8 feet) wide stage in the Exit Art windows, I run on a treadmill while microphones monitor my internal and binaural sounds and an EKG monitors my heart rate. These sounds provide to the listener on private head sets some insight into the interior space that I inhabit when I am running, a personal form of prayer.
