Join me on Nuit Blanche 2012 at Tequila Bookworm. Curated by Earl Miller with the Queen Street West BIA.
Performance artist Natasha Bailey shares her curiosity about the audiences of her performances: “I want to learn more about the audience, who they are, their interests, likes and dislikes.” With this in mind, Bailey has designed a performance requiring the audience to fully interact with her. Tequila Bookworm is hosting this event in which the artist invites art seekers to take part in a five-minute Skype speed date.
Seated at two computers staged in the restaurant window, an audience member and the artist communicate by typing via keyboard – their computer screens are projected to reveal this interaction.
Texting and Internet-based dialogue has replaced most face‐to‐face encounters. This performance plays on the current human disconnect by forcing both parties to engage in an intimate encounter that limits personal interaction.
