This live performance was presented at Tibet House US, NY as part of 'Sacred Vision Separate Views' group exhibition. 'Clearing The Mind' is based on the Zen concept of living in the moment. I employed a number of balls made of human hair that represent attached memories and thoughts. Throughout the meditative performance, which was accompanied by a Shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) played by Zachary Skinner, l performed an intimately quiet and slow process of cutting the connection and emptying the thoughts, inviting the audience to capture the past and cleanse their accumulated memories.
