Time lapse documentation of A Kiss For Luck, originally performed in a storefront gallery in Manhattan, NY from July 23-August 11, 2013. Over the course of three weeks, I transformed an old wooden boat into a sea of shavings. This video compresses the entire process into 15 minutes of time lapse. In this alternate edit, the footage has been juxtaposed against a key audio selection from NASA recordings of the 1961 MA-5 mission.
