In 1970 the artist John Baldessari cremated all of his paintings. From the ashes he made some cookies. In early 2013, visitors to the performance page of my website were prompted to enter the name of their favorite kind of cookie. This generated a browser cookie that led to a screen thanking them for deleting my performance history.
Month of Confidence
Email documentation 2014
I spent a month trying to be more confident and emailed myself status updates along the way.
Images submitted via Instagram and Twitter in response to the questions, “What do you value?” and “What do you bring to the table?” were stacked on top of the first Google image result for the word “table.”
