Attendant is a collaboration with institutions and the people who attend or attend to them, culminating in short performative events and the resulting installations, around the country.
The attendant volunteers to observe instances of a fleeting event personal to them, and to place a marker of some kind, for each instance he or she observes.
I'm interested in the question, If we're in the same place at the same time, are we having the same experience? Also, in seeing what happens when expected roles and behaviors within a given environment are changed up for a set interval of time.
