I’m Practicing for the Tyranny of Color

We engage with colors in conscious and unconscious ways daily. This project actively combines the artist’s face, multiple colors and Dr. Seuss’s children’s book: One fish two fish red fish blue fish.  The performance setup involves the artist in front of the camera randomly inserting colored balls into his eye sockets and mouth.  Meanwhile (with his back turned to the performance) a sitting reader of One fish two fish red fish blue fish activates the camera shutter each time he finishes a page of the book.  All pages of the book are represented by the installation photo.
