Baggage, The Suitcase show

A few weeks ago, Jeff Stark invited me to take part in Baggage, The Suitcase show, which was part of a larger one night art/theatre performance at the ICA in Boston called The Experiment. The general premise was put an art object into peoples hands and let them have an experience with that object which defies the normal art object/viewer relationship. Guests were greeted by a bellhop who handed out suitcases which they could take to private viewing rooms. Once alone you were given as much time as you wanted with the artwork, returning it at your own discretion. Jeff's work rides a fine line between theatre, art, and interactive performance and I was honored to be a part of his larger vision. Below is a view inside my suitcase which held all of the tools you need to procure your own NYC phonebooth along with a video for inspiration.
