The Attention Experiment

Workshop with PTAB- Praksis Teen Advisory Board in Oslo, May 2021 as part of the In Character series

The workshop involved five teens from different backgrounds. We discussed my approach in dealing with the climate crisis and the attention economy through performance art. We discussed various performative options and locations as well as whether my breast should be “in” or “out”. The teen advisors settled on making an attention grabbing performance in the grounds of Akershus fortress in which they also performed in self-styled costumes which concealed their identities.
