This week was the week of the performance. I was quite apprehensive, because although our group worked well, my interests and way of working was very different to the others in my group. I did an installation designed to work best spanning over several days and relating to current events and they made costumes from the 18th Century!
I think in the end we did fine. I dressed in a period way too and helped with background music and costume changes. I also gave out my labelled items during the performance so that they could be read and understood by the audience before taking them back again. I am glad that our piece was interactive.
ADD PICTURES FROM PERFORMANCE!
I think in the future I want to work on socially engaged art - I have been reading Relational Aesthetics by Nicholas Bouriarrd and it really interested me.
