On Friday, September 6th, 2013, MFA candidates Courtney Thayer and Craig Ryan presented their installation and performance piece, entitled “#doyoufollow”. The event took place at the Working Method Contemporary gallery in the Railroad Square Art Park, during the busy First Friday community and art event that happens each month.
The performance began at 6:30 pm and finished approximately two hours later at 8:30 pm. This interactive installation featured the two artists suspended in the air wearing harnesses in a room separate from view of the audience save for five peepholes located on the wall that divides the two rooms. There was, however, a live feed of the artists that streamed on a television in the same room as the audience. First Friday goers, FSU faculty, students, and alum alike came to peer through the peepholes to see the performance from all angles.
This was the Working Method Contemporary gallery’s final exhibition at the Railroad Square location as they are moving to the Carnaghi Arts Building very soon.
