As I have been collecting documentation of the event, I received a really brilliant range of photographs from George, that although don't actually show the whole space, or work, I think capture the atmosphere of the work. They are quite dramatic shots, and I love the lighting on the burlap, they both capture some sort of movement and the work contrasts well against the black and white bathroom floor. I purposely did not ask for any sort of specific documentation to take place, as I enjoyed the fact I wasn't able to see the work completed. It is funny the amount of people who talk to me about it, not realising it was actually me inside of the work.
Today's moment performing was energy draining. I am at a point where my skin is completely dried up and cracked, by bruises only grow as I perform, and my back today gave way and aches. Any illusion of discomfort or pain that appeared to be endure is now real. I am becoming the illusion I sought to create, and it is not great. Obviously if the discomfort is getting too much, I will not continue, but I am enduring more then I usually would, because I'm curious. My actions today have been slowly, and I have not been moving nearly as much as the private view, while still trying to retain some of the intensity from that night. I heard Lucy, Jessie, and Simon talking on a couple of occasions and remarked that I was moving a lot more then expected and it has played on my mind. In my collection of work my actions are very limited, and this is probably the first work with considerable movement. To be completely honest, I didn't realise until I watched footage that I was moving half as much as I actually was. The conscious element of the work is displacing slightly, where things aren't quite matching up between what the viewer see, and I think they are seeing. The lines are blurring between my internal performer and the exterior object of the work.
