When Things Don't Go As Planned, Plan As You Go
In two days, I'll be participating in a night of durational performances produced by Continuum Performance Art they're calling Submission.
Because they're good enough to let me play once again in their sandbox, I'm doing a piece I'm calling Flouring/Flowering.
And because it's late at night and I still have to get to the day job in the morning, I'm not going to talk too very much about this---I'll do a post-mortem after the show and give more detail on the evolution of this piece. In fact, I suspect even in the 48 hours until it's in progress, it wouldn't surprise me if it evolved a little more. Such is the nature of this performance art thing. It's definitely not going to end up being what I first thought. Planning. Whatever.
Suffice to say, there is colored flour involved. Above is a picture of my first batches of it.
I hope it'll be pretty. At least for a bit. Then I predict it'll get messy. Maybe it'll be a beautiful mess.
Read a little bit more in this notice in the Houston Press.
And come see me. Leave the kids at home, but come see me and the other artists of Continuum.
