Touching Subjectivities - Direct Interaction
To address the idea of a multiplicity of a nation, me and my creative assistant, Fernada Machado, went into five journeys throughout our home country, Brazil. I took a bus to a town I have never heard the name and repeated the same process several times within a journey. This system that allowed me to reach towns outside of Brazilian tourist destinations. In the towns I created unusual Interventions in the space. when the residents were interested in my actions I invited them to participate in the performative act of creating a photograph, reverting the role between artist and viewer. The result was a documentary of an encounter with my culture using performance, intervention and public theater to start a conversation that reveled the nuances of our subjectivities and cultural behavior; and at the same time was a game that we created together.
