Before/After Scenting New York by Julia Barbee

This was my first time to New York, so I proposed a simple processional performance, which gave me the valuable opportunity to introduce my practice of engaging with pedestrians, geography, and architecture by dispersing scent applied to my body. I built in the space to wander the street, collect material, and just be there; it was a calming time of reflection, within the constant flow of the city's energy. Surprisingly, the visit ended up being very meditative, an appropriate end to the festival titled Ritual.
