Dressed as a Spaceman in Front of the Big Prawn/ Intelligentsia

Performance by Luke Foster and Video/Photography by Yannick Soyez

“Creativity is a great motivator because it makes people interested in what they are doing. Creativity gives hope that there can be a worthwhile idea. Creativity gives the possibility of some sort of achievement to everyone. Creativity makes life more fun and more interesting.”

 Edward de Bono

I am not sure if there is any hidden meaning in this performance of me dressed as a spaceman in front of the Ballina big prawn with my book of original drawings “Things and People I Like About America.”

This time I preferred to work intuitively and let the audience find their own meaning in this work. However afterwards I felt a great sense of relief and compassion and joking around playfully with Yannick while we got coffees.

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”

Dalai Lama
