Statement of Intent

One Year Performance is the direct result of the frustration caused by the 2016 election, and the manner in which we have been treating our fellow citizens. 

During this year long performance, I will abstain from the media as defined as "a diversified collection of media technologies that reach a large audience via mass communication." In doing so, my hope is to find direct connections to causes that I believe in though human interaction. 

Every month, a secondary month long "withholding" will be added to the project. The "withheld" are actions and ideas that 21st century people use to satisfy themselves. The "withholdings" will explore the what it means to participate in normal societal interactions. 

At the time of the last update, the projects are as follows:

December - No viewing of reflection for one month

January - No eating for pleasure or enjoyment for one month

March/April - No speaking of personal experiences for one month
