This is me as my character Taiwan Braswell wearing a custom made leotard by Proenza Schouler. I was preparing to give a performance at Taxter and Spengemann for my exhibition Revelation 23-9, Trade In My Life. The exhibition was scheduled during Performa '09. The air was dusty, irritated my allergies, made my throat itchy and scratchy. I rehearsed here for the camera. It was a Sunday, my favorite day of the week. I didn't expect many people to show up. They did. The performance ended up being more than I had anticipated.
