Artist Statement:


    Allan Kaprow produced an extensive series of books to complement his activity-based projects. These books took the form of instructions and were meant to help people create their own versions of the activities being described. Warm Ups (for Allan Kaprow) refers to Kaprow’s work in which activities create warmth in different ways. In my reinterpretation of the work, the user engages in modified versions of several of the interactions found in Kaprow’s Warm Ups. The viewer is asked to perform these actions and then respond to cues from the piece, therefore completing the piece through their performance.
