The Public Projects
Analyses, Critics and Experiments in Audience Behavior
During the past five years different works were initiated which had a focus on public behavior in art and non-art spaces. These pieces consist of both passive and interactive parts. The public made the works by either acting in a certain way, fulfilling a specific event, performing in a more or less free area or an array of the above mentioned. The core of this undertaking was to do research on how the public acts and reacts to the artpiece's wishes, artistic conventions and to the artistic concept known as 'social sculpture'. By mixing up logical self-reference, the concept of choosing to see what one wants to see and the commonness of certain behaviour as well as by zooming into trivial actions and reformulating them in a sometimes selfreferent way or by juxtaposing these actions to others, a new vision on these were encountered by the public after their interference. The artist functioned mostly as a mediator in these pieces. He drew the blueprint of the pieces which were actually built by the public.
Part VI: Quote: "While seeming futile to some,
reinventing the wheel and the better mouse trap
are both worthy endeavors."
