  • Crayongießen, Lo-Fi Arts Festival 2013 and Nepo 5k Don't Run 2013

    Crayongießen is an interactive performance piece where I tell participants fortunes read from the dropped casts of melted crayons. The idea is based on a German New Years tradition called Bleigießen, where people melt a small amount of lead, drop it in a bowl of water, and then read their fortune from the shape. This piece is my own manifestation of the confusion of mixing someone’s ancient tradition with the everyday. It is also an exploration of what a person’s interpretations of abstract shapes can reveal, similar to the Rorschach Test.
