Artist's notes:

We attempt for the first time to use microphones so the project is more audible for viewers. This brings a sense of self-consciousness to the performance, and an experience of being disembodied from our voices, which does not serve the development of a sense of intimacy between us. Despite this, Barbara maintains a quiet focus and intensity throughout. For the first twenty or thirty names, we primarily remember women. In general, we take care to remember. There is a large and persistently present audience. Barbara begins with Tehching Hsieh. And concludes with Lygia Clark.
