Sketches for Art for Animals: Getting to Know You, Getting to Know More About You, 2010

Chris wants to make art for animals. In order to make art for animals, he needs to know what kind of art animals would like. In order to know what kind of art animals would like, he needs to understand what it's like to be an animal--what it's like to see and hear and think and feel and behave like an animal. These projects are also made for other people to try, so that they can give Chris feedback about their own experiences, and also so they can make their own art for animals. This project is intended to help understand what it is like to meet and greet each other like animals.

The interactive performance is initiated by a gallery visitor who wants to get to know Chris. The two of them then get to know each other in the more extensive, more intricate, more physical, and more sensory-based style of many animals. There is no direct documentation of this performance.
