Shaping Perceptions: The self as an affective and effective work of art

This project, attempts to interact with the citizens of Murcia in a process of knowledge exchange through a project that comprises several pillars, all of which are planned to be and use clear descriptive and educative language. The project aims to take Murcia as a sample of a non-cosmopolitan Mediterranean city, a city in which contemporary practices like public intervention and contemporary interactive methods of knowledge sharing and exchange of various forms and their reception are all to be proved. I plan to perform a contemporary art experiment on it. The project/ artwork aims to take an educational approach to interact with different age groups and social strata in the city of Murcia on the nature, extent and appreciation of contemporary art. In other words the artist (myself) becomes only one single tool and one single element in the experiment (i.e. in the manufacture of the artwork).
