Title: Picture Yourself on the Moon
(from the series “Art that says Hello”)

Year: 1997

Medium: Performance interventions conducted on behalf of the fictional company, Art Courtesy Services

Description: For this series the artist wore the identifying uniform of an Art Courtesy Services Provider and offered unique art-inspired experiences to passers-by. The slogan for the series was “Courtesy is the Aesthetic” and it served as the guiding principle for amiable street performances premised on good natured banter and unique experiences for passersby. For ‘Picture Yourself on the Moon’ people were invited to have their feet photographed as they stood on an image of the moon’s surface. Participants signed a guestbook for their visit to the moon, and later were sent photographic prints of their visit to the lunar surface.
