Daniel’s most recent performance unfolds in the form of visual and emotional, cartoon vignettes, with speech balloons depicting all dialogue. The Face of Everything traces and develops the internal dialogue of a melancholic teenager and various meditations on the relationship between beauty and sadness, and a romantic view of pain. A nostalgic, electronic score, composed by Matthew Adam Hart, of the Russian Futurists, parallels this monologue, and the sentimental, sometimes absurdly fancy, piano playing of Liberace.

Daniel Barrow is a Winnipeg-based media artist. Since 1993, Daniel Barrow has used an overhead projector to relay ideas and short narratives.

Depicting visual and emotional vignettes through a poetic inquiry using an overhead projector, The Wallflower is a graphic-performance by Daniel Barrow. This live illustration traces the internal dialogue of a famous peripheral cartoon sub-character. The ugly girl who wants to believe in something beautiful but enjoys giving up.
