Participatory archive of conversations, questions, poem. Los Angeles. December 2016.

A collaboration with Kiyomi Fukui

Conversations is an interactive performance that is activated by the participants. We used the Thoughtitarium (build by Neil Mathis), a sound-modulating hemisphere, as a vessel to house the conversations.

Participants were not given any instruction on how to perform conversations other than an hourglass, a poem and paper scrolls with questions.  



How to Have a Conversation

pay attention.

listen wholeheartedly.


talk wholeheartedly.

embrace imperfection

share vulnerability.

it's not the details

it's you. heart and soul.

the temperature of your energy

the weight of your breath.

your hands, your nosetip,

the scent of your skin. 

be prepared to be amazed.

all is worthy.
