Continuation of dress making
Performance – “Look at ME”
My performance starts off from a quiet chanting of “Look at me” as I make four different hand actions.
The four actions are:
- moving my hands in a rotational way before me along the level of my torso (While saying “Look at me!”). when I want to project my idea to someone, my hands move outwards to convey what I mean .
- raising my hands in the air and pointing at the ceiling to check if there is a roof above me or not (While saying “Look at me!”).
- patting my face frantically (While saying “Look at me!”).
- patting my chest frantically (While saying “Look at me!”).
- Repeats actions above.
As I progress through the actions, my voice increases in volume. I become more agitated and dramatic in my actions, such that my actions no longer follow an order and I start pulling at my hair.
At my craziest moment, I suddenly become quiet and stand at the middle of the room/ space while I comb through my hair. The action of combing my hair represents distraction, frustration and anxiousness – “Oh no, I lost so much hair!
