Attention Economy

Living street art by Courtnee Fallon Rex

Performing “Attention Economy” in Tacoma, WA – April 18, 2019 (image by @laila.tova)

STATEMENT

Sometimes, we round a corner to find something unexpected patiently waiting there for us. An opportunity to briefly remove the cloak of societal expectation from our shoulders. A offer to defy our pervasive social isolation on its face. The chance to bravely experience something unique, something fundamental in its simplicity, profound in its vitality, and so deeply human that we may have all but forgotten its existence.

SCHEDULE

  • Every 3rd Thursday of the month, in conjunction with Tacoma Art Walk

INSTRUCTIONS

Welcome! Please allow me as little as 3 wordless minutes of your time to spontaneously experience the following:

  • With the chair across from me empty, press the X button on the timer adhered to the chair’s back. Your initiation signifies both your consent to participate and readiness to begin.
  • You are allowed 20 extra seconds to seat yourself comfortably, before our two-minute exercise in mutual gaze begins.
  • When our time finishes, please signal the closing of our performance piece by pressing the X button again to quiet the timer.

Inspired by the work of Maria Abramović
