As part of the 2016 Echo Art Fair, Null Point realized a site-specific version of James Saunders‘s Surfaces, in a performance that was also the work’s North American premiere. Sited in the historic Albert Kahn-designed Buffalo Gear and Axle Plant, all sounds were produced by activating the disintegrating building’s floors.


Surfaces was curated by Colin Tucker and realized by Bob Fullex, Ethan Hayden, Zane Merritt, Colin Tucker, David Wegehaupt, and audience members.
