IF IT ISNT WORKING FOR WHATEVCER REASON I WILL CHRECK AGAIN LATER RIGHTE NOW I AM JUST TOO FRUSTRATRED
I liked how there were sort of two categories of performances, ones that invited audience interaction and ones that didn't. I don't want to suggest that either is better, because I don't feel like there is a "better" way to perform relational art. I just like that for this assignment both types of performances were present.
Malcolm's piece was especially interesting to because I find body art very beautiful. It's a shame that I lost the footage of his. (I curse small SD cards to the heavens and back.) I love the way that the body becomes a field of interaction, collaboration between artists-- Malcolm and the students painting. It's also great how long his piece lasts. The shower, the cleaning. It's a sort of constant.
I also really liked Noah's performance. I thought the sort of anecdotal way of explaining the performance was refreshing from the sort of silence most of the other performances took. It felt like an accurate representation of a lawrence experience. rice milk. oats. raisin bran. story telling. Then, the audience interaction came unprompted-- out of sheer curiosity or the need to share their experience as well.
