Confusion
for this assignment I highlighted things I do in my studio by presenting them as the work, rather than experiments or play. I traced half of a Man Ray drawing and stapled it on to a black painting with a dump of gold pigment, glue and saliva. I made rubbings with graphite of my studio floor, I kicked a hole in one of my paintings, I added a piece of chewed gum to my paint palette, and I glued a penny to the studio floor. At first these were things I did just to do them. Things I think about in the studio, silly acts of rebellion of curiosity. I wrote them all down as titles and signed my name and the date - referring to practices of the DaDa artists or performance artists, leaving instructions for a piece to be made. I nailed the papers to a normal painting and allowed that to stand as the final piece, with the actual acts on display as well.
