exercise G [grapefruit]

After receiving a set of instructions from Yoko Ono’s Grapefruit or Paul Shortt’s Performances for Waiting in Line, perform the actions on campus during class time. Write about your experience of performing the actions and of any public response you observed during your performance on your blog. Also include any applicable documentation (images, videos, drawings, etc.) in your post.

Use this exercise as a warm-up before beginning your Self-Directed Performance Project — push yourself out of your comfort zone and question the parameters of how art is made. Can you make art with your body? Complete as many actions as you have time for in class today.

RESOURCES: Hard copies of Yoko Ono’s Grapefruit or Paul Shortt’s Performances for Waiting in Line available in class.

DUE DATE: Post photos, videos, or a written description of the actions you performed by the end of class today Wednesday 03/04.
