Swati @ AiOP

“Scrolling Texts, Texting Scrolls” is a participatory performance where Swati Khurana will transcribe saved text messages of passersby onto scrolls, tied with thread. The artist will have a mobile “work-station” fashioned out of a cigarette girl’s tray with translucent vellum, ink pens and red thread. At various moments throughout the festival, the public will be invited to participate, as the artist moves along different points on 14th Street. AiOP 2012: MODEL, a festival of transformative ideas, wearable visions of positive change, and walking theories that expand preconceived notions of public space and art. From October 5 -15, national and international artist-citizens will take over 14th Street through poetry, performance, site-specific installations, videos, painting, sculpture, drawing, illustration, street art, mobile studios, design, music, as well as innovative trans-disciplinary work. Sashay, swagger, roll, prance, play, aspire, duck walk, run, jump, drop, tap, crawl, and strut along with over 100 artist-citizens as they are celebrated, presented, demonstrated, and paraded on 14th Street. http://www.artinoddplaces.org
