Participation Art

My latest body of work is in Participation Art. I define this as an art form where the active participation of those in attendance is both integral & required, and the work cannot exist without it; where an “audience” is impossible; and where one emerges, changed by the experience.

The first piece as presented at The Sculpture Center, Cleveland, Ohio, After the Pedestal, an exhibition juried by Paola Morsiani, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art) on June 5, 2009. It was entitled Full Moon over Hot Springs – a participation involving the hospitality of bread & wine, coupled with the ancient communion of the hot springs under the full moon.
