Lobby 7

Performance and Documentation Video, 7min. 1999

Lobby 7 was performed in the main lobby of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I hijacked the lobby’s informational monitor, interrupting its daily broadcast with a transmission of my own. This transmission was a real-time exploration of my body and the surrounding architecture as seen through the natural openings of my clothes, via a lipstick surveillance camera that I held in my hand. The performance took one half hour- the time needed to capture every part of myself I that I could reach.
