A satellite project of the Letter to the World series, Savings is an interactive performance/ installation exploring the corroding effect of time on a slowly fading relationship. Set in an abandoned bank, the 4-hour performance focused on two characters, Anna and Tom, and took place in six different installations in various locations including the vault, and a grand marble staircase. Viewers could enter and exit the work at their own discretion, and chose the order and length of observing each space. Audience members could explore the many small artifacts of Anna and Tom’s relationship in safety deposit boxes. In another room, Anna wrote letters to Tom, unfinished and crumpled. When Anna left, Tom would open the discarded letters that were never really meant for him to read. Faded video projection of Anna and Tom mirrored the performers’ deflated movement in the stark lighting of the bank.
