Rubatosis

// One-to-One Performance // 2017 // 

Rubatosis: (n). The unsettling awareness of your own heartbeat. 

Rubatosis is an ongoing documentation project which draws attention to individuals relationship with their own heart, focusing on how to fix ‘a broken heart’. Through one-to-one performances, I spend time with each participant, exchanging stories, anecdotes and words of wisdom. As a thank you for sharing, the participants are invited to have a personalised heart painted on to their body, wherever they so choose.

A story and photograph is collected for documentation and is placed into a book at the end of the performance.
