VESSEL 


Vessel is a 15-min performance art piece done at Tenam, a private music studio and performance art space in San Diego that showcases performance art through their street-view window every Monday-Friday at 10 am. 

To preface, Tenam is an excellent space to workshop ideas with an audience in a very low-pressure setting. This felt very much like an experiment and I learned a lot from doing it. 





In this piece, I entered the space in an intervered boat pose, 180 degrees turned, with my forhead and knees on the ground. A compliation track of boat-horn-blasts played as a I held position. I rotated 90 degrees and finally landed into proper boat position which I held for the remaining ~10 mins of the piece. With ship horns sounding off loudly, some might say abnoxiously, my vessel stared ahead in silence.
