This is a performance Art worked by MA(2015-2016) and MFA (2015-2017) students from Kingston University. People came out the idea of ‘LUST ALIEN’ which was random picked up from the words we wrote on the walls.
Then people started to think about the concept of what is Lust Alien, then we found out the definition such as Alienation, Misunderstanding, Community, Us/them, Outside/inside. We decided to do a performance at Naming rights and try to intervene the space there with neighbors. The theme color is grey, so we started to produce papers by ourselves as much as possible.
We designed the Logo first, because we want to make the LOGO looks like Alien language, Junnan used Chinese letters to write the English word ‘Lust Alien’ which looks like this in the photo below.
Junnan and I were practicing writing the Logo by Chinese Brush.
After few discussion, we simplify the Logo to be ‘LA’. Because my job is to stamp the Logo ‘LA’ on audience papers, so I sculpt two stamps, one small one big as shown below in the photo.
The process of the whole performance is inviting someone to the Naming rights, and everyone in position and do their own things unless the human clock shout ‘Fire’ etc. Then everyone which do the same thing at the same time which make audience feels odd, we are like Aliens. Most of the people will make papers during the show, some stand on the stone to be the sculpture, Sunim will be the advisor and write suggestions on the paper we made and I will stamp on the paper when audience leaves.
Here are the photos people took during the performance, it was quite success and people really enjoyed the whole process of this module.
