As an artist, are there ideas presented by Professor Robert Savid which can be used in a time-based work (such as a film or theater piece).
Some of the ideas:
• time as malleable, changeable
• aging as relative (theory of relativity)
• time travel
• time dilation
• length contraction
Describe how you might use one of these theories in an artwork.

On Wednesday Jessica Frelinghuysen presented a lecture on Performance Art.
Some of the works she featured:
•William Wegman, video shorts (the deodorant, "massage" chair, etc)
• Coco Fusco and Guillermo Gomez-Pena - piece at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History piece about a newly "discovered" people exhibited in cages
•The Yesmen - corporate interventions
•Marina Abramovic - performance piece where she stands nude with her partner in the doorway of a gallery forcing visitors to touch them while passing through
•Improv Everywhere - Frozen Grand Central Station
Select an artist/artwork and describe how performance art is defined. How is it different from a work for the theater? How is it different from a sculpture or painting?
