1/1

TLR: 462 had a communal vibe. There was a reverence and anticipation. Usually you go to an art show and its wine and dine. I’ve never seen anything like it before, not even in church, and I’ve been in different churches my whole life. I mean, how the hell did you get people to stand around for an hour, two times, and not go anywhere? I’ve literally never seen anything like that before. People stayed until the very end. Everybody wanted to be invested with you. That command, how does that feel to you? To command people’s attention that way. 

 

​JAM: 462 had elements of horror and the abject, which both run parallel courses. The abject is something that disturbs identity, system, order. It does not respect borders, positions or rules. It is the in-between, the ambiguous, and the composite. Whereas beyond fear, horror connects us to one of our most primal desires: voyeurism, the uncontrollable desire to look.  There were no rules or expectations for the audience. I have to stress that. I didn't expect anything, but there is no denying the time we shared was both intimate and emotional.
