2nd Nieuwstraat Festival, Dordrecht, Netherlands
My Performance Concept for volunteers
To document by photographic means objects lying on the ground in Nieuwstraat. . The objects should not be permanently attached or fixed to the street level.
The objects which should be looked for includes everything what is movable. Among others dead inspects, dead birds, paper, plastic pieces, metal objects, feathers, leaf's, lose stones, broken glass, cigarettes stubs, garbage, mouth masks, blood stains and grease stains. Regardless how big or how small.
The performer should start at one end and one side of the Nieuwstraat, taking pictures with a smart phone. After taking the picture he/she should send the photos/images directly to my WhatsApp account before continue. There is no need to search for the perfect styled photo. After the performer reach the other end of Nieuwstraat . He/she should repeat the same procedure on the other side of Nieuwstraat and walk back to the starting point
Two volunteers carried out my concept. Nico conducted the performance in the morning and Ienke in the evening on the 19th of June 2021. Here is a selection from their images they took. The photos from 1-15 are from Nico. 16-30 are from Ineke
