performance with graphite on round table, chair                 

performed at HaHaus, Pasadena

duration:  approximately 10 minutes

Prior to the performance, the top surface of the table was prepared with graphite, polished to a reflective surface.  During the performance, I put powdered graphite approximately two inches from the outside edge of the table.  I then sat on the chair and stretched my arms as far as possible gathering the powdered graphite toward my head forming a silhouette of it.  I stood up and walked away.
