Oki-do Yoga 2013 at the Museum of Contemporary Art as part of Workout series of performances curated by Anna Davis

All I wanted was a place to lie down and do some stretches. I had my own retreat for seven hours, an action elongated and accompanied by some wicked fast beats by The Presets, Skrillex, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs amongst others. People could choose to do their own stretches, I did no instruction, I only asked that people took off their shoes and refrained from talking. Brian Fuata did observe throughout the day and devise his reaction. I took a photo from the balcony each hour when I went out and had a smoke.

Seven Days of Packaging

I collected the packaging of various foods I consumed and made a self portrait, using watercolours.
