Ghost Performance Art by David Senior

David: What’s up. Nice to see you!

Ghost: (wincing) Very funny, smart guy.

David: Yeah – sorry. Can never resist that joke.

Ghost: (laughing) Whatever! You’re a goofball.

David: What’s new? Do anything fun for Halloween?

Ghost: Had a couple gigs – it’s kind of a working holiday. Took our baby out though – that was fun. We have a parade in our neighborhood for the kids.

David: That’s right – you had a kid! Saw some pictures you put up on Facebook. It’s cool how you tag them so we know the little one is in the shot!

Ghost: Yeah! We’ve been going a little crazy with the photos. She’s just starting to float around a bit now and she said her first little “boo” the other day.

David: How about work – you able to get in the studio at all?

Ghost: Yeah. It’s actually been a good time for making work. Been making really minimal sculptures at home, writing some poems. I thought of you too because I’m thinking of making a book of performance documentation.

David: Yeah? That sounds super. I now you’ve always had a hard time getting that work out there, getting it seen.

Ghost: I’d really like to make a little book of the site-specific performances that I do. Especially the one “Ghost in the Machine” that I did in the subway last year. That one’s really important to me.

David: Super. It does seem important – to provide a bit more info. An artist’s book can be a great way to document a performance… I mean I know the limitations you face with this work.

Ghost: SORRY – Don’t want to be a drag. I know we’ve talked about this before. I just put so much energy and time into my events and the public is always so unresponsive. It’s frustrating.

David: Yeah (awkward pause). What you are doing is really… subtle.

Ghost: You mean, because I am invisible.

David Yes.
