Precarious is an edited document of Schneemann's multi-channel DVD projection installation with motorized mirror system, commissioned by the Tate Liverpool's 2009 Abandon Normal Devices (AND) Festival. The document compresses the mirrored video projections of dancing in captivity: fleeting sequences in which a bird, a bear, prisoners and Schneemann are seen dancing within the shifting frames of cages and the video format itself.

Filmed, edited & sound by Carolee Schneemann.
