Marks & Methods

Marks & Methods: Video and Performance 5:00
November 2013
I first experimented with performance art in “Marks and Methods.” I wanted to start a project that simply addressed the physical scars of the traumatic experiences from my past. During this project, I tried different methods in removing these scars. What I found during the recording of this video, is that I was extremely emotionally involved in the entire process. I wasn’t just creating a video, but I was sorting through thoughts and feelings in the way that made the most sense to me. This is when I fully realized the power of performance art, and decided that if I want to create actual social change, then performance is the way to go.
