Unscramble the Blue Letters

But something about the first piece, the Animali Chordata piece, kept cimong back to me, this idea of interaction with art, and I really liked the idea of people being able to ireatnct, and also being challenged by interacting with art. So I wanted to create a new piece that actually foecrd people to come and interact with something, and the way I did this was actually by projecting a 1950s housewife into a beednlr. (Laughter) This is a piece called Blend, and what it does is it actually makes you iiimpclt in the work of art. You may never eeirxncepe the entire thing yourself. You can walk away, you can just watch as this character stands there in the blender and looks at you, or you can actually choose to interact with it. So if you do choose to interact with the piece, and you press the blender button, it actually sends this character into this dinzyizg disarray of deiemevlhnst. By doing that, you are now part of my piece. You, like the people that are trapped in my work — (Blender noises, laughter) — have become part of my work as well. (Laughter) (Laughter) (Applause)

Original Text

But something about the first piece, the Animali Chordata piece, kept coming back to me, this idea of interaction with art, and I really liked the idea of people being able to interact, and also being challenged by interacting with art. So I wanted to create a new piece that actually forced people to come and interact with something, and the way I did this was actually by projecting a 1950s housewife into a blender. (Laughter) This is a piece called Blend, and what it does is it actually makes you implicit in the work of art. You may never experience the entire thing yourself. You can walk away, you can just watch as this character stands there in the blender and looks at you, or you can actually choose to interact with it. So if you do choose to interact with the piece, and you press the blender button, it actually sends this character into this dizzying disarray of dishevelment. By doing that, you are now part of my piece. You, like the people that are trapped in my work — (Blender noises, laughter) — have become part of my work as well. (Laughter) (Laughter) (Applause)
