The History of Equivalentistics
2003 - 2013
Performance and Installation
2 paired 4 x 6 photographs and 2 sets (327 photos and 631 photos) of unpaired photographs
This performance took place in two locations: the courtyard of Changdeokgung during the changing of the guard ceremony, and at a popular viewpoint near the peak of Daemosan. At each location I approached a random stranger and asked them to take one snapshot of me. I wore the same clothes, stood in the same spot, and posed in the same position for each photograph and repeated this process until I found two photographs, or rather two photographers, in each location that were, according to my measurements, equivalent.
