Nothing Happens

A Performance in Three Acts

October 2006

Supported by The Greenwall Foundation

Nothing Happens was a networked online performance in which viewers worked together to make a series of objects tip over. The performance consisted of three acts, which were  centered on staged environments – a high shelf, a cluttered tabletop, and a deserted corner. Each scene contained a central protagonist: a cardboard box, a clear pint glass full of water, and a wooden chair. In all three acts, web-enabled physical devices controlled by the viewer’s clicks made these objects tip over.
