Short Documentation of Eat Meat Meteorite
Peekskill Projects 2006
Participatory public performance with Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg and the Society for a Subliminal State hosted by the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art.
Held outdoors in the waterfront park and other public spaces, passersby are invited to experience the never seen before event through personal hijacking of the small meatless meatballs (compliments Trader Joe's). Visitors can now experience the collision first hand as it is videotaped anew.
Sunday, October 9th, 1992, a meteorite went through the roof of a red Chevy Malibu owned by a local high school student in Peekskill, New York. The only witness was a blind woman who lived next door. Peekskill police contested "it must have been a very strong man." While across the country, football games were being videotaped by fans, at last twelve of which tilted their cameras up to the sky capturing the asteroid mid tragectory. Upon hitting the Earth's atmosphere the asteroid broke apart, but one chunk lodged in the Knapp's driveway. People scattered to find pieces of the first asteroid to be caught multiple times by camera before hitting the earth tracing the it's path from. There are still calls out for additional footage and people still search for pieces of the now very expensive rocks from outer space.
