TITLE: Sans Gravity
: I choose to unfurl performance actions in a live setting. To be clear, an image is devised - a moment, which would be ludicrous to re-hearse and so, I attempt the moment in view of others This structured moment leads to meaning for me, which is encountered in the presence of the witness, the critic, and the bystander.
