"Under Certain Circumstances" (在某些情况下)
"Under Certain Circumstances" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
I work for no man! … because my boss is a woman. It somehow seems better this way. She knows exactly what to say and do to motivate me and the other employees to keep moving forward, especially as this Shanghai weather gets nicer and motivation becomes harder to come by. Maybe we’ve all just fully taken to our roles though, and committed to them against a fear of being “found out” in a general sort of way. Like Abramovic said after Rhythm 10 “Once you enter the performance state, you push your body to do things you absolutely could never normally do.” It’s funny how the pressure of a spotlight can act as a sort of mask, a deep motivator for the correct behaviors. It’s even funnier how different tones of the light can change which behaviors seem appropriate. Should I kick this crying baby in the head? Usually not. Should I help the old man who has fallen in the street? In most situations, yes. Should I go to work today? Probably. But not always. Only under certain circumstances.
