This is my next challenge to Fuji along our Creative October Challenge 🙂 Although it has at least one very elegant mathematical solution (which i’ll share afterwards for those of you who may not know what i’m talking about), i’m especially curious about how a bold artist like Fuji might approach it!
In the video, which wound up getting much longer than i’d have liked, i also spend some time motivating the challenge by questioning the concept of ‘performance’ (in art) — what is it? Does a performance happen on stage, or in the spectator’s subjective experience, as many illusionists will say? To what extent is it a secret (and different) exchange, in public, between artist and each audience member?
Fuji and i have been challenging each other throughout the month of October to experiment with different habits and create something new every week. We’ve been making videos describing our process and results and sharing our “dialog” here on my blog. It starts with Fuji & Mika #0 — Creative October Challenge, where we explain the concept and share our first challenges to each other.
