Improvised in front of a camera, Mutations consists of a series of signs directed towards an imagined audience. Sometimes playful, sometimes defensive, they underline the variety and occasional ambiguity of gestures. The work also explores the dynamic relationship between time, space and the body. Mutations has been staged as a performance, and in 1971, Rinke made a twenty-five-minute film on the same theme.
