I'm on assignment this week - following a set of instructions from Patrick Ferreri for a project he's working on:
"spend 2 min exploring each of the following tasks...
...middle finger dance, start by focusing on the bones and how they fit into their joints
...try to get your scapula and floating ribs to touch
...try to get the opposing halves of your pelvis to touch
...combine all three ideas and see what happens"
I interpreted the timing liberally. In the end what happened was the rules exploded into something else - a reactive alchemical composite, an animus all its own.
The music is C.P.E. Bach's Concerto for Harpsichord and Strings.
