"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
UPDATE: Archived versions of both performances are viewable on Storify:
The artist performed her first Twitter reading from @Art21 on October 26, 2012 (see the archived performance on Storify).
Through posts of 140 characters or less, the artist will "read" stanzas of a story from her memoir, Conversations with Stalin, before continuing with the remaining two of four New York-based performances. The artist encourages audience participation throughout, and will respond to questions submitted by audience members following the live Twitter "reading."
Already have a question for the artist? Feel free to send them in the via comments below or via Twitter at any time ahead of the performance.
