Eliza Chakin Kenan Statement

“Color Response and Exchange” is a performance using the 6 sided bricks as a starting point for a game of word association. The bricks act as a medium through which the differences between how we see ourselves and how others see us is made more obvious. The combination of colors I see as I hold the brick may trigger a personal memory that will then be impacted further by the person I’m standing across from. I may not be aware of what ideas or memories the same brick is imprinting on my partner, as they are seeing a different set of adjacent colors while watching me hold it. The words exchanged between us will be spontaneous, fluid, and both understandable and mysterious.
