I ask people to smell me and then write down their observations. How they gather the "data" and the form of their writing is left to their discretion.
Performed as part of the Subtle Bodies
series at the Hammer Museum in March 2010.
In May 2010, I performed a variation for The Sweat Lodge
at MIT, in which I was concealed by a curtain in an enclosed structure. Participants had to request the specific body part they wanted to smell. I would proffer the part they wanted through a hole in the curtain.
