“the ridiculousness of what we’re doing, sheds light on exactly how people are living” EJ
“people assume that what you’re performing is what you are” EJ
“collaboration is making space for others to exist” EJ
Eisa Jocson is an artist and performer. We speak about:
  • fixing oneself in the thing we are trying to unfix
  • the fluidity of the human form
  • actions that are related to a very specific social context
  • the richness of experience of actually being in a context
  • assimilating to context
  • the need for deconstruction
  • “asking for the stereotype to move closer towards me” – matt cornell
  • “it’s like they don’t trust the object or experience is enough to bring the people to that realisation” EJ
