I'm taking this class in performance art. It's not really a performance art class per say, it's actually time arts. Other time art classes are doing like animations and stuff, but I got stuck with the teacher who is into performance art, which is also time art.
So for this week I had to do a piece on public and private spaces, or actions, or objects. (for example someone picking their nose in public, or Vito Acconci's piece where he masturbated under the gallery floor. The piece had to do with how people feel about public space vs private space. Or personal objects in a public idea.
SOOOOOOOOOOOO this was totally hard. I am not a performance artist, and I didn't want to pee in anyones mouth or run naked through pioneer square. I was pretty scrapped for ideas.
What I ended up doing was I went into JC Penny's and stripped down a mannequin in a open public area, and slipped my dirty underwear onto it. Then I took a picture because we have to document it for class. It was so weird, stalking out waiting for a time when no one was there. I was such a mall creep, like one of those guys you see fondling a bust. But I didn't chicken out. I really thought I would.
Now I have to figure out a good way to arrange it.( DocumentationCollapse )
