Take A Shot


Take A Shot is a real-life game of alter egos, asking audiences to literally consume and inhabit the art. A series of personality-bending concoctions encouraged people to act boldly and explore their own performativity in a large public setting.


This interactive work invited participants to choose one of four unique drinks: the "Party Animal", the "Lover", the "Daredevil" or the "Explorer". After choosing a personality, participants signed a formal contract, promising to embody that character for the 52 minute-life of the concoction. Participants were free to interpret the instruction in any way they wished.
