Good Night

Description: A performance piece for the opening night of each event. I was hidden behind a sheet of stretch velvet with only my legs sticking out the front. Above me I installed two containers, one with milk, one with honey. The spouts of the containers stuck out the front of the velvet aligned high above my legs. Underneath my legs, in the front, I had placed a stockpot over a propane burner with a table with cups and a ladle next to it. For the performance I turned on the honey spout (control of the faucets was behind the fabric with me) and had honey flow onto one of my feet and then into the stockpot. Once that foot was sufficiently covered I turned on the milk spout and washed the honey off with the other foot, all into the stockpot underneath me. As I was repeating this action, I filled the pot with hot milk and honey. People could help themselves to this beverage throughout the night.

Let Grass Grow Over It

Description: A performance piece for the opening night of each event. Me and a close Thai girl friend of mine were hidden underneath the bed naked. The viewers could stick their hands into any of the 40 holes cut into the top. They could not see us through the covered up holes, but could communicate only through touch. We responded to the viewers only if they were being very inappropriate (mostly that discouraged them.) We encouraged viewers, who were scared.

Yellow Dress Fantasies

Description: A 15’ yellow and white children’s dress suspended from the ceiling. The participant was invited to enter the dress, possible only by lifting the bottom of the skirt. Inside there was a mount of mixed sand and Johnson’s baby powder and above that an old wooden swing. The participant could swing inside the dress, feeling the surrounding fabric on the body and the sand and a slight baby powder smell on the feet.
