“In its most pressing formulations, live art redefines our understandings of intimacy and risk. It invites new ways of thinking about how these seemingly opposed logics are tied to each other, in our experiences of art, performance and the everyday”.

– Dominic Johnson, “Intimacy and Risk in Live Art” Histories and Practices of Live Art (2012)


  1. My own relationship and what binds us together emotionally and physically.
  2. Putting oneself at risk, an act of faith in another.
  3. The immediacy of seeing human’s bleeding.
  4. Resisting the urge to help – to stop the bleeding, to stem the flow and pain of it all.
