Wanna Play?, Grace Space, Brooklyn, NY, April 2012
Play / searching / unknown / anticipate / sugar / games / balance / time
Space: white floor, stainless steel table, bottom of table filled with a mound of sugar, single light bulb hanging in front of table. I start slowing picking up the sugar with both hands and putting it on the floor on both sides of the table. I continue doing this for 3 hours. In that time, I start to find different things in the sugar – letters and dominoes. All are cast in sugar. When I find a domino I put it on top of the table. When I find a letter I place it in front of the table. By the end the letters spell out Wanna Play and there is a full set of dominoes on the table. I play dominoes with 10 + audience members until the numbers start to disappear.
