Today I took part in the jomo workshop. I went in with the intention of trying on my piece around other humans and have interactions. But that went out the window, we ended up choosing to have the performers circulate the materials ever 5 minuets. I was really open to this as it allowed to play around with other peoples material and sound equipment that I've never used before. After my experience with dancers last week I was also very excited to watch other performance artists wear my pieces. I gave no directions, simply wanting them to experiment as much as possible. People instinctual worn the cones on there hands and used them to interact with objects, others were used to create sculpture forms them placing them around the room and the head cone was worn on the top of the head like a wizard hat the majority of the time. Things all became very chaotic ad loose, it was really freeing when everyone was just doing loads of different things, I felt free to move and free of any judgement. I'm not sure if this could be considered an artwork as such more of a therapy or a creative process, or perhaps just being a human for a while.
