My Fourth Performance Piece

In all honesty, this is how I feel when I listen to people talk about the meaning behind my work.

Instead of imagining the audience is full of dogs, I feel like I'm a dog showing stuff to an audience of art majors. I can try and disguise myself with a suit but it's pretty obvious I'm a dog. This was very evident today when I showed my fourth performance piece. I feel like, despite trying to disguise it as performance art, it was still obvious it was a video made for entertainment. And that's because, deep down, all I really want to do is entertain people. I can try to dress myself and my work up as art but, honestly, my motives are a lot more superficial than that. 

I'll try to upload the video I made for my fourth project when I stop getting error messages.

  1. Lucian, I enjoy every one of your blogs. You have a gift with writing. I always feel your voice. You are very insightful and imaginative and it will all come together in time. I know it. I believe it. Keep pushing. I am not familiar with your other two mentors in addition to Laurie A. I hope you keep working on that cake video.
