About the Who Are You Project
This project is an interactive performance piece. I invite any and all to participate. The performer wears a their pillowcase- an object of intimacy and privacy- in order to strip the artist of their identity. The clothing is simple and generic. The sketch pad has private information about the artist, things that would have the viewer assume and judge the artist. The last page invites the viewer to remove the pillowcase and actually get to know the artist instead of judging them based on words. After removing the pillowcase and having a conversation the audience is then invited to write their own story of when they were judged based on looks or categories instead of actions or personality.
