Oxbow Friday Continued: Lines in Sand Critique
We looked at some excerpts of the lines in the sand video. Many felt that this video was about me not about the content. But then the discussion was about the repetitive labor, the meditation which was going on during the performance. Some thought that the fact that I went in and out of frame until about 300 lines was a mistake, others like this. discussion touched upon the relative value of the three-million number, the interaction with the public, the video documentation itself, the artifactal nature of the numbered sticks. Some classmates would prefer to see still shots of the project than video.
