It’s nice to be able to see my performative piece, “all flesh is grass” from another person’s vantage. But- is it a true thing, that document? Does it exist just for vanity’s sake? What is it’s relationship to the piece?

quasi-objects (the objects inside that you hold outside yourself), the performance pedestal with archived objects (the things I want to know) ritual dance objects made by the artist’s father (assorted furs, quills and feathers collected from his hunts, assorted bells, felt and commercial feathers), a dozen orange roses, Rebecca Vaughan wearing a slight mask made of paint, the artist wearing a paper mâché mask

The artist and performance partner, Rebecca Vaughan, stood and waited for the arrival (or rejection) of a third performance partner who was selected to have control over whether the performance was activated.

Upon arrival of the third performance partner, Tracy Tomko, an assortment of squishy, soft, round, organic and/ or long objects were attached to the core of the artist’s body making present the objects inside that she holds outside herself.

If the third performance partner had rejected the proposal the artist and her confirmed performance partner, Rebecca Vaughan would have stood and waited until 7:30 and then the performance would have abruptly ended.
