Two-Week Performance

Juggle was a two-week, one-hour per day interractive performance. Participants were able to push a glowing red button on a pedestal. After pushing the button, a sign incribed with "Juggle" would light up, prompting the artist to juggle paint-covered balls while standing on black paper. The resulting white paint which splatters the paper and artist's clothes represents the kinetic motion of the juggling act, the dropped balls, and the interraction of people entering the gallery and making the artist juggle. This work is unique to the people, time, and location. It explores how we can manipulate other people to perform, entertain, and even fail. The paint contains all of these elements.
