performance, 6 hours

This interactive performance work engages visitors in the creation of a collective living organism. Moving through the museum like a peddler, Paul collects the breath of visitors in small household jars while simultaneously collecting their gestures and movements in her own body. She creates choreography by weaving together the collected movement of the participants. This performance was created for World AIDS Awareness Day.
