Artist Statement:


    A Really Great Idea is a humorous performance inspired by early Conceptual Art. In it, the artist uses a hacked brainwave sensor to turn a light bulb positioned over his head on and off. Revisiting the highly influential performance and video works of the 1960s and 1970s, the performance is an absurdist proposal that looks at simple actions and the concept of an idea.
