Crafting is seen as separate from art, but what if crafting was public? What if crafting could become a political act or inspire a moment of the uncanny? Performance Crafting seeks to to create a platform for discussing greater cultural issues and form meaningful relationships across regions and cultures. For the next few months, artist, Tanya Aguiñiga, will be staging performance craft events in order to encourage human interaction with the natural and urban environments.
