On your mind - Tel Aviv

Performance Art Platform, Tel Aviv

September 2005

Before entering the performance space I gave each viewer a piece of chalk and whispered in their ear ‘what are you thinking?’ On entering the space, they found two monitors each showing slide shows of ‘thoughts’ I had collected through random encounters in the streets of Moshi, Tanzania and in Carlisle, UK. The thoughts I had collected during the day in Tel Aviv were being uploaded onto a laptop along with the photos of foreheads, so that a slide show was being created and projected live. On the wall either side of the projected slide show was the question ‘What are you thinking?’ and viewers wrote their own thoughts here.
