Practicing Positivity

In the empty pool of the Bain St-Michel I rolled down a large sheet of paper on which I wrote the title, Practicing Positivity. I set fire to the paper and went to the middle of the pool wearing ear protection and carrying a bucket of soapy water. I tapped out a slow beat with my foot and relentlessly repeated the word YES to this tempo, which became increasingly faster, louder and more aggressive.  I then washed my hands and mouth with soap.
A second version was performed, without the fire, at the ZAZ festival. The words of the title were written on my arms and washed off at the end of the performance.
