UCSD Open Studios, March 9th 2014, 2 hour duration, UC San Diego La Jolla, CA Documentation by Tara Pixley
For open studios I decided to perform a simple gesture throughout the grounds of the Visual Arts Facility and the Structural and Materials Engineering Building. I placed my body in small corridors, passageways and across the tops and bottoms of stairs, situations that encouraged people to walk over me. During the performance I talked to people asking them about their day. From a distance one woman exclaimed to her children Look theres a dead artist! I promptly replied Im not dead! Im alive!
