Can I get a witness?
Can I get a witness? explores art as experience, through the delivery of a new series of site-specific, one-on-one performances/actions conducted in public space. This on-going project is a series of unlimited performative gestures in different public spaces. Each gesture is only performed once; each location is only used once; and, each invited witness will only ever witness one performance (gesture). Each witness is then asked to provide a written account of their experience within the 24 hours following the performance. The witness may also submit other forms of documentation. The witness's account is the only "evidence" or documentation of the performance; the actual performance remains and intimate exchange between the invited stranger and myself.
