The video above brings us back to an evening last December where I ventured to Iowa City to join forces with Kaloyan Ivanov to perfom “Void Simulacrum”. He brought this piece from Brooklyn for the opening of Public One Space’s opening of SOMATOTOPIA, an international, touchable art show. Relive my experience in the void and enjoy a conversation with K himself. The following photos give you a peak into the other pieces on display that evening. Some failed while others enticed. Texture, taste, smell and skill were used to promote interaction with the objects displayed.
