Abstract or Summary

A short piece of conceptual performance art. The score is self explanatory. CONTEXTUAL BACKGROUND FOR THE WORK: Performance art has a long and established tradition - drawing back to artists like Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, and even some of the work of John Cage. It may be either scored or improvised; spontaneous or otherwise carefully planned; and both the performer and audience can be present or absent - it sets up a conceptual framework that allows it to exist without being specifically realised. It can be any situation that involves four basic elements: time, space, presence in a medium, and a relationship between performer and audience. "Indeed, at its worst, performance art can seem gratuitous, boring or just plain weird. But, at its best, it taps into our most basic shared instincts: our physical and psychological needs for food, shelter, sex, and human interaction; our individual fears and self-consciousness; our concerns about life, the future, and the world we live in. It often forces us to think about issues in a way that can be disturbing and uncomfortable, but it can also make us laugh by calling attention to the absurdities in life and the idiosyncrasies of human behavior." - The Khan Academy PUBLISHED ONLINE.
