Overview

As you know, the Flashmob has become one of the dominant art forms of our time. Flashmobs can be silly, irreverent, pranks & fun… they can also dissect and critique the fabric of our “ordinary” days and ask us if this is really the life we meant to live… to do both of those things in one work… that’s remarkable.

You could call Flashmobs “Performance Art,” although that’s interesting in that Flashmobs are typically so lite and fun… and “Performance Art” very often has more gravitas and perhaps darkness or at least an unflinching look at human culture / human condition. We’ll talk about Performance Artists in our Razor’s Edge lecture… but this week it’s time to have some fun with our very own Flashmobs.

Flashmob on Wikipedia

The Plan

• Form Groups – any size… 2 peeps or 20… 9a or 11a or mixed…
• Come up with an idea… here’s a few inspiring videos for you:

What we’d like each person to do is be on a “Planning Committee” for 1 Flashmob… and then to also “Participate” in 2 others. This should be easy to do since most Flashmobs are only a few minutes long. We’re asking you all to schedule your Flashmobs for ON the CSULB Campus and During Classtime on Thursday, Feb 9. Or at least in the 9a – 2p range on Thursday.

When you have your flashmob planned, put the
• TITLE
• TIME
• LOCATION
• NAMES of Organizers
• and any necessary DETAILS, like “wear a red t-shirt”

in a COMMENT on THIS page. So the Comments / bottom of this page will become a complete listing of all the Flashmobs and everyone can just pick 2 that sound fun or convenient to participate in.

For the one you plan, you may be in it, but your focus is on organizing and documenting. Peeps will want pix & vids to put on their blogs, so it’s up to the organizers to provide them to the peeps who are busy BEING IN your flashmob and don’t have the ability to shoot their own. The TA’s will help document when possible, but the organizers should take responsibility to document.

DOCUMENTATION
Please post raw pix ‘n vids for your classmates to use by Friday midnight.
• Add pix to this flickr group (yes, make a free flickr account and upload pix, please! 🙂
• For vids, please upload to YouTube, and then put a link in the COMMENTS on THIS PAGE. Glenn will then add your vids to this YouTube playlist which peeps can grab links from to put vids on their blogs… or if you check Creative Commons on your vid, they can even use YouTube to edit their own version of it.

Your Blog Post

DOCUMENTATION
Photo / Video: use the flickr group / YouTube playlist above to find the pieces you were in an put them on your blog.

VLOG
Talk about your Flashmob experiences.

ARTISTS
This week look up 1 “Flashmob Artist” and 1 “Performance Artist” from the lists below. In your vlog talk a little bit about their work, how it speaks to you, compare the two, and see if you can draw any sort of connections between their work and your own experience creating Flashmobs and considering culture.

FLASHMOB ARTISTS
Bill Wasik
Charlie Todd
Kevin Bracken
Lori Kufner

PERFORMANCE ARTISTS
Allan Kaprow
Ana Mendieta
Joseph Beuys
Karen Finley
Marina Abramovic
Stelarc
Yves Klein

Reading
And after all that flashmob excitement… don’t forget this week’s mini-reading in Eva & Franco Mattes: It’s Always Six O’clock, starting on p124.

Here’s a little video about the exhibition by that title:

        Don’t worry about bringing a light saber if you don’t have one. Although it would be nice if you brought your own, I am already planning on buying about 4 of them or so. Also don’t worry about the central quad, we are going to meet in front of the library.
