Poetic Response:  responding to artists

We respond to the art we are visiting by mimicking the contemporary practices that we see in exhibits.

An example: PAPER SHOES AND HUMAN ENERGY

Before we went to see Viviane Courtois’ exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, we learned that she made her own shoes out of jute. She wears each pair until they fall apart, saves them, and numbers them.

Her exhibit displayed all the shoes she has worn out so far, in chronological order. We made paper shoes that morning and wore them over our own shoes to the museum. By the time we got to Viviane Courtois’ show, they had fallen apart just like Vivian’s shoes.
