Transferral with George

December 11, 2014

I have been collaborating with artist George Shaw on the mindful encounters project. We did the whole 16 hours over two days, with a week in between the first and second day. It was all performed in public spaces in Manhattan. At the end of the first day, we engaged in the video performance Transferral, a still of which is below.

 

George commented "There’s a lot of gentle smiling going on but for a moment my smile masks a tightness in my chest that is not physiological but emotional. I’m not sure why this is happening but I try not to fight it. It takes me by surprise though. For a brief moment I can feel my eyes about to well up but I push through the moment and take back control. Seconds later H calls time and it happens to be just in time."

 

Full documentation will be on the mindful encounters website by June 2015.
