On Your Mind

On your mind involves street action and is another ongoing work that I began in Tanzania in 2005 and have continued in Israel, Poland, Croatia as well as UK. In each case I spend a day in the streets of the city I am in, asking people at random if they would tell me what is on their minds - just at the point before I asked them. I write down what they tell me and then photograph their foreheads. Later I produce slide shows quoting each person's comments printed on top of the photo of their heads. These slide shows become elements in future performances or installations.
