Drawing on the visual language of 1970s performance art documentation, the work constructs a photographic archive of audiences. As an installation, comprised of more than 400 photographs, the work is a form of performance for the camera, whilst also recording the appearance, dress and body language of various social groups at a particular moment in time.
