Control experiences about the body  

1'11"  2015

The constructed identity is an experiment, and a set of experiments explore the concept of "post-identity". The post-identity concept comes from "Themes of Contemporary Art -- Visual Art after 1980”

 

In the beginning, it was self-introduction and self-analysis, including self-portrait.

 

After introduction, a "behavior calibrator" is set to determine the random behavior according to the behavior calibrator and achieve self-breakthrough. Our behavior calibrator implementation process is through a playing card game to determine the implementation of the behavior.

The details are as follows:

  • Preparation stage: shuffle a card (ghost card) and deal.

  • Card stage: the hand has a pair to be out, counterclockwise in turn to touch an opponent card, also have a pair out. Whoever plays first is first until only one person holds one card, and that person loses. The first loser opens the ghost card, completes the behavior written on the ghost card. The rest of the group started the second game, and the loser did the same with the authorities' ghost card. The last player randomly selects a completed card from the deck.

In the "control experience about the body" image, four experiencers, myself included, complete a four-person body stack and hold it for a while. I'm in the second person's position up there, and I have to be in control and let my body fall gently to be caught. This "behavioral model" reflects the idea that uncontrollable behavior can be controlled by self-awareness.

After this, I further studied control and loss of control in "I'm drunk!" video and performance art.

This experiment was included in the "constructed identity" author Yang yifei, 2015
