IF I WAS YOU

Performance, 2012

"If I was You" was a 3-day urban performance, wearing a hand-sewn "blank suit" and completely removing my identity. For 3 days I walked the streets of San Francisco, without an identity, carrying one hidden tape recorder. I let everyone tell me what I was doing and who I was. If they told me to do it I would do it. At the end of the 3 days, I had a name, an age, and a motive. I was identified as a professional fencer, taught fencing moves, brought into unknown vehicles, guided into hidden communities, and even a song was created about me. This was 2013. This project was presented at Counter Pulse Theatre for a show titled 'Stranger in a Strange Land'.
