The Rule is Love (orange) was performed at The 8th Floor as part of Enacting Stillness curated by Sara Reisman in January 2017. The performance deals with normalizing practices of spectatorship, exclusion, apathy, and conformity. For it I stood surrounded by over 2000 tacks blind folded, gagged with my hands tied in front. The objective was for audience members to keep me from steeping on the tacks with provided props. The performance lasted 2 hours. This performance is the first of a series under the same name.
