I went to try a little trial for the final project and tried to choose the right title to ‘hook’ the audiences. Even though, I did it in the afternoon I had a few audiences from different countries.
I realised that it was better to not put the country where you come from because some people might not scroll to where Singapore is on the map and watch us.
In addition, the name ” Makeup Transformation” was quite an effective hook i realise as people knew what to expect when they are watching it.
On the other hand, I also realised that it was good for me to respond and talk to people commenting as it made me feel like there was a connection between the audience and me. Also, audiences liked it if i were to talk more when I performed. It was a very interesting experience. I felt that some of the conversation was similar to the ones we had when we were on adobe connect. It was random and very entertaining.
Overall, I think I did enjoyed it alot. Even though it was just a small preview to what I was going to do on the actual day.
I initially wanted to not talk to the audience but after that I realised that It does not really work. So I would do that on my actual performance also and I would like it if more people commented.
One thought on “Project Update”
I agree, I think it makes a lot of sense for you to communicate with the audience while you are putting on makeup. I thought you were actually going to ask the audience to make suggestions as you apply the various cosmetics? It would be very interesting for the audience to engage your identity transformation, which makes it more of a collective work, much like Yoko Ono’s Cut Piece. Is it possible that you can capture the recording? We will discuss various methods for doing that tonight.
