Interactive public intervention
AiOP and DUMBO Arts Center
A site specific interactive performative walk/sculpture in two phases.Two performers walk a neighborhood until their wearable sculptures are “diminished”. Each garment is entirely covered with thousands of mirrored buttons.
The performers give away individual mirrored buttons to the public as a conscious act of dispersing/migrating the sculpture -- in trade for a photograph portrait taken by performer of the subject with a point and shoot camera.The buttons become “mementos” of the interactive sculpture performance.
The second phases is realized the next day when the photograph portraits of the public are made into black and white portrait buttons -- the buttons depleted from the garments are replaced with the black and white portrait buttons and a second performative walk is undertaken.
