Playing cards for interactive performance, "Rules of the Confessional".
On the back of each card was an intimate conversation topic. Viewers at the exhibit opening chose a playing card, either randomly, for its drawn image, or by looking and relating to the subject matter written on the back. They would find me in the gallery, and in that moment remove me from my social situation. We would sit in two armchairs set up in the back of gallery to disclose our experiences, memories and opinions relating to the conversation card topic. Often I would go first, allowing the viewer to get to know me and making her/him comfortable to be vulnerable with me. We were separated enough from the crowd to make the experience feel intimate, but we were also in full view from the exhibit, and could be interrupted at any time.
