Throwing My Weight Around

I threw my weight around until there was no more weight to throw.

Each time, I threw my weight (as of that day) in a different form of water–bottled water, snow, and wet leaves.

The length of the performance was determined by the amount of time it took to fully disseminate his weight.

Version 1: bottled water, 175.5 pounds, performance: ~60 minutes, video: 9 minutes 4 seconds. Performed at the MadArt gallery in St. Louis.

Version 2: snow, 176 pounds, performance and video: 3 minutes 14 seconds. Performed at home in Murphysboro, Illinois.

Version 3: wet leaves, 175.5 pounds, performance and video: 11 minutes 50 seconds. Performed at home in Murphysboro, Illinois.
