This Performance Is Three Minutes Long,
2009
8 minutes
Performance
Chicago, IL
The performer starts a three minute countdown on an iPad then tells the audience that the performance is going to be three minutes long. During the three minutes, the performer tries to sell the audience on the idea that there is a spiritual transformation occuring inside everyone in the space. Just before the end of the three minutes, the performer politely requests the audience for more time to perform as the transformation is ongoing. The performance lasts until the audience stops giving additional time to the performer.

(Nightfall),

5 minutes
Performance
Chicago, IL
The performer stands in front of an audience with his arms stretched out while holding a lit candle, upright, in each hand. The performer slowly turns the candle in his right hand upside down by twisting his arm forward and after a moment he does the same with the candle in his left hand but by twisting the arm backwards. The candles violently drip burning wax onto the floor. The performance stops when the performer can no longer endure the flames burning upwards.

This performance is inspired by Bas Jan Ader’s Nightfall
