This performance saw me occupy an environment under construction, all at once evident of a previous function and in a process of becoming. Doing so, I would practice a ritualistic absurdity, one which adopted a consideration of time and space in relation to intense physical strain. The exercise marked the my attempts at incorporating a degree of audience involvement into my work. The participant would engage with the performer by placing fragments of rock upon the artist’s back while vocalising any discomfort or general thought processes while doing so.
