Platform Constellation (Harlem Ave: Sept. 22-26, 2003; 7:51-8:15 AM)
performance with photo documentation
A five-day performance on a Metra station platform, while commuters waited for the 8:15 train each morning. Each day, six actors are involved in a kind of activity which stood out slightly but would not seem out of place altogether: a tense phone conversation, a person pacing between two lampposts, a couple sitting intimately on a bench. Each morning uses six new actors, so that the odd behavior appears to be repeated by different people. Phone Conversation (Monday-Friday) Work in collaboration with Dominick Talvacchio.
