Easter break week 1,2 and 3

week 1

In the first week I decided to go back and follow the triangle of Research, Experimentation, and Reflect from first week lecture of the second semester.  

Research. 

I decided to do research on Pina Bausch so, I can learn and improve my performance. Her movements were simple, powerful, and emotional.

week 2

Visiting my place in the Arts centre

I went to the art centre to have a look and take measurement of my performance area beforehand. It was important because I was thinking about marking the floor (performance area) with black electrical tape.

After putting all the pieces together for my project and the takeover performance, I decided to go to the National Library of Wales and Hugh Owen Library to see different ways of installing documents and maps.

Reflect.

In the last and final week, I decided to take a break but dive deep into my mind and body to explore my home, my Body, my existence through different senses.
