Monument – a statue, building, or other structure erected to commemorate a notable person or event.

The future of art is a continuous conversation and journey. The collaboration, the people, the place, an international group coming together – the world, the circle, the unity, the chain. Starting as a monument, now a space.

Deconstruction of objects with the reconstruction of ideas, recycling and transition of objects to materiality. The conversation continues.

PATH is defined as a way or track laid down for walking or made by continual treading. What started as the monument became the conversation and creates a PATH. The PATH takes you on that experience – manipulating small and large components. We walk through from micro and macro viewpoints. From all the learnings and history there are new beginnings and new ideas.

This is the start. This is the PATH.

Self(ie) and performance(my first live in person performance) for PATH shot from chestcam, taking words and sentences from my notebooks and writing them on pieces of rubble I pick out from under the plastic sheeting as well as taking selfies with as many people in the room as possible. Using new technologies to make reference to ‘the new everyday’, the live audience becomes part of the performance while the audience at home (video audience) get the sensation of becoming the artist/performer.

Here are all the selfies
