ACTIVITY emerged from a series of interviews with artists about their creative process. Each conversation is translated into an instructional script that directs the audience to make the artist’s work. The videos combine imperative statements with conversational interruptions to explore the specificity of the systems artists create for themselves to make work. "You" refers to the artist, as well as the general audience, and invites viewers to consider themselves as collaborators.
The title of the work moves the conversation about ‘practice’ out of the realm of the artist and into the everyday, asking how all activities, mundane or extravagant, can be considered peculiar, poetic, or generative.
