Response Priming


5 players, 1 hour, 4 sessions
Modified evolutionary psychology experiment, mortality salience, flow diagram
4K video

Response Priming was a series of social psychology experiment modifications facilitated by the artist. Based on Terror Management Theories in evolutionary psychology, the sessions were created in consultation with researchers at the University of Athens.

Accompanying the video are new flow diagrams by the artist, which function here as performance scores. The work explores methods in experimental psychology as a model for artistic practice, the use of video as a qualitative research document.
