I am a helicopter, camera, queen is a performance project at Tate Live Performance Room for a live online viewership. I used the helicopter, the camera, and the queen as representations of territory and seeing—regimes of viewing and ways of understanding space. I worked with 100 volunteers who were willing to identify as queer and/or feminists. Taking the precise confines of the room itself as the score, and thinking about scale, resources and units of measure, the choreography made room, reconstituting and queering a previously defined space. The participants are guided by a room size score below their feet.
