You Know The Artist, You See The Soldier
Live Performance accompanied by video and stills
This was a short performance featuring myself, the artist, as I walk around a space, changing from civilian attire to the Army Combat Uniform; I also recite the Soldier’s Creed as I walk. This walk gradually shifts to a rigid march as I become more and more stiff as each article of clothing changes. At the completion of the performance, there is left a soldier in full uniform, with a notable change in disposition. The artist the classmates have known are now introduced to the soldier they have never met.
