a video and mixed-media performative installation

2008

 

A working space is gradually filled with disposable plastic cups, each covered in hand-written diary entries. A performer fills each cup with colored water and distributes them on every horizontal surface in the studio. Navigating the space grows increasingly difficult and spills are frequent and inevitable. The performer persists regardless. The performance functions as both a low-tech blog and a painting system.
