In a darkened room, a pulsing light, a glowing box, a rhythmic pounding, a live recording,
herenothere. Chuckers, slowly walks, slowly turns, slowly kneels, slowly prays, slowly bends, slowly sits, slowly feels,
slowly something appears,
not really here,
not really nowhere.
In this performance, (entitled glitterbug) I dressed up as a glitterbug and made little creature-things to place on shelves. These creature-things were made out of rudamentery materials, such as paper-clay, water based paint, sequins and glitter. I had a helper get people to make drawings of “bug-alien creatures” which were then placed to the side of this character. The character would then look at these drawings occassionally, which they used as inspiration for making the creature-things. This performance took place over the entire two-hour student annual opening.
