Call for Participants: Freeway Collaborations

As part of ongoing research into site-based performance, the California landscape, and the psycho-geographies of the tour, the trip, & the commute, BARGE is inviting  collaborators for a series of ‘accidental encounters’ —


Sometime in the afternoon of Friday Oct 24 I will be driving a red Toyota pick-up south on I-5, between Stockton and Los Angeles. On Monday evening Oct 27, I will have parked the same pick-up outside of Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown. Sometime midday Tuesday Oct 28 I will be driving the same pick-up on westbound Hwy 62, between Yucca Valley and Twenty-nine Palms. At some point in the morning of Thursday Oct 30, the same pick-up will be moving northeastward on 247. In each instance, collaborators are welcome to crash their vehicles into mine, creating a site-based accidental sculpture, a public-art performance, & the resultant documentation in the form of police, medical, repair-shop and insurance records. Collaborators will be considered instant co-authors of the results.


RSVPs not necessary, though welcome.

  1. This would fit in nicely with my, ‘Shady Copse Collaboration’. I’m inviting people to kill me by bludgeoning me to death with a heavy instrument of their choice. The site will be a shady copse just off the I-5 outside Stockton. Maybe I could crash into your truck, and you could get mad and follow me . . .
