Making

"Making" was a collaborative performance, which was the culmination of a four week workshop at the Kansas City Art Institute. After studying performance art, and creating our own performances, the class was challenged with the task of collaborating on an endurance performance piece. We chose to do something pretty regular, make toast. For a lot of us the toast symbolized art, and the repetitive and sometimes robotic way we had come to make it. This toast was distributed to the masses in the gallery, in hopes that someone would accept our creation. The performance lasted two hours in which we had "breaks" where we were allowed to do something different than just make toast. Some destroyed the toast, some paced the gallery, some used the toast to create something new, and some simply napped. 

The late Kate Lindholm Sargent was our instructor and led the performance.
