Locations: Teotihuacan Archeological Site / Pyramid of the Sun, and Reforma Avenue / Torre Mayor, Mexico City.
Materials: athletic clothing, cochineal pigment (crushed insects), and a soccer ball.
Action: Tossing the ball into the air, letting it collide with the left side of my chest, then catching it. This action was repeated for approximately two hours in each location.
Description: The first location I selected was in front of the Pyramid of the Sun at the archeological site of Teotihuacan during the Spring Equinox. The second was in front of the Torre Mayor, the largest skyscraper in Mexico. The action created for this project was inspired by nuclear fusion - the collision of two elements under the force of gravity.
