Concessions

For two days in October of 2012, I ran a concessions booth (in a beachfront concessions booth that was slated for demolition) as part of Provincetown's 2012 10 Days of Art Festival where I shared 80+/- hand-typed index cards itemizing concessions that I could remember having made at various points in my life with complete strangers. Some concessions were very small or petty, others very large and heavy.

I allowed passersby to read through my concessions and answered their questions about them honestly. If they wanted to, visitors to the stand were allowed to take one of my numbered, typed concessions in exchange for letting me document one of theirs to replace it. Each day's collection of cards became basically a collective poem about human weakness.

(Index cards, Hermes rocket typewriter, writing, interactions.)
