Gesture 1: User Instruction Assignment

Read: Rosa Menkman, The Glitch Moment(um)

Review: User Instruction References

Perform a gesture inspired by or creatively reinterpreting one of the found user instruction sets in a way that reveals something about yourself. See what is a gesture? for guidelines. Some ideas or starting points:

  • Devise a new set of instructions inspired by the other set to be performed by yourself or the class.
  • Perform the instructions as stated, but in some unexpected way.
  • Perform some meaningful breaking of the rules.

We will review these gestures 10/9-18. Please come prepared to present on 10/9. If you require special setup (additional time, specific equipment or location, specific presentation date) email lmccart@ucla.edu and cc carlosga@ucla.edu in advance.
