ONE YEAR LIFE PERFORMANCE 2.0 (2009-2010)

Documenting Durational Live Performance Art Using Social Media


On June 16th 2009 I began recording everything I did during the day, sharing my experiences through social media.

It was a reality show, coming to you, on each day, for one whole year, for free.

Where does live performance art end and life begin? Why are such distinctions made, between live art and life itself?

What if one tries to overcome these formal differences? Is it possible for me to approach my everyday life as a documentary performance?

This project is part of my ongoing investigation into the relation between live performance art and its documentation,
which has now grown to include the world of social media, as well as my own everyday life.
