the pedestrian project

the pedestrian project

performance art freaks me out. i also used to think that i didn't like when people dress up as other things, but that's an overstatement. i don't like when people are completely covered by their costume; oversized & engulfing, full face paint &/or masks creep me out in a way i can't explain. with that said, i'd run if i came face to face with this project & become obsessed from afar.

taken from the website: the pedestrian project consists of several performers wearing entirely black custom-made costumes modeled after the generic images of men, women, and children seen on public signs. mimicking the lives of everyday people, the roaming sculptural forms inspire the imaginations of onlookers, who often find themselves mesmerized as these familiar icons assume busy lives of their own.
