Performance Art

1. Something weird is happening with the blog and it keeps cutting off the first few sentences.

Monday night, I was on campus for Young Life when one of my favorite Patriots, Lauren, began telling me about her art teacher and a dead rabbit. Obviously, I was intrigued. She told me it was part of a performance art installation that would be happening the next day.

Cut to Tuesday. I was meeting another one of my favorite Patriots, Jenny Hughes, on campus for lunch. I asked her if she would mind first going to see this. After telling her the details, Jenny was in for the adventure. Step 1 was finding it. I don’t know any of the names of buildings on campus, all I knew was it was in the basement of the art building.

We ended up here. The building was merely a shell. After hemming and hawing for a few moments about other possibilities (a conversation to which I could add nothing other than “I know it’s in the basement of the art building…” not helpful), Jenny had a stroke of genius and remembered the other possibility.

The construction on the other building has a lot to live up to

We walked in the building and headed downstairs and practically walked right into the installation. Lauren’s teacher was sitting in a chair wearing a golden mask holding the bunny. She appeared to be talking to the rabbit, although it wasn’t audible.

The people were mesmerized. Jenny and I stood there for a few minutes and then signaled to each other that maybe it was time to move on. I am not completely sure I got it, but one thing I was glad to learn later on was that the rabbit was a stuffed one.

Maybe for next week I will try an installation of my own?
