"Robot, Plant, Animal and Human" (2017)
Duration: 3 hours
The human (myself) will throw a tennis ball in the space for the animal (a dog) to catch, until the dog accidentally run into the plant and make it fall and spill out all the soil. The robot (a Roomba vacuum cleaner) that roams around on its own will vacuum away all the soil. Then the human will switch off the robot and throw away all the dust, and put the plant back upright. Then the series of action repeat form the beginning. The performance will end when all the soil in the pot of plant has been sucked up and disappeared.
Audiences are welcomed to play with the dog.
