This performance took place at Powerhouse Arena during the 2010 Dumbo Arts Festival: 36 models followed live direction, as vocalists and violins emerged from within the "living picture." The performance featured an original a Cappella score by Rima Fand and Sarah Small, and co-performance direction by Adam J. Thompson. Directly following the performance, a panel of choreographers, curators, and art historians (Jill Sigman, Mashinka Firunts, Danny Snelson, and Natalie Galazka) led a discussion about the contemporary intersection of performance and photography. The panel was moderated by Elizabeth Barragan and was curated by Lindsay Comstock.
Thought I would offer up an insight into some of my life modelling work. This session takes place in a living room of a domestic property. Very relaxed with about 6 - 8 people of varying artistic abilities. Poses go from 2 minutes through to 4 hours. I tend to improvise my poses according to how I feel at the time. It's a lot more fun that way. In general there's not really much talking as people are concentrating on their artwork. I love seeing the different sketches after each pose and the different ways that people may interpret my naked image.
