Three Chairs is rhythmic study ("percussive video") of three chairs made on December 6, 1994 just outside Dan Senn's Shy Anne Studio in Tacoma, WA. The piece is shot on Hi8 tape, in-camera edited, and intended from the outset to be viewed over 4 rotated and stacked video monitors. This online version demonstrates the orientation and its effect. The piece was taped over a 2 hour period.

The sound track for Three Chairs was improvised on Gamelydes 1, 2, 3 and 4 at Waterhouse Studio, Watertown, WI on September 13, 2020.
