100 Attempts at Perfection: Each Side
Performance
Kyle Duske
2010

One Hundred Attempts at Perfection (Each Side) explores cultural ideas of perfection through a publicly performed meditation that begins with the whitening of the body through powders before attempting to hit a Japanese Makiware one hundred times with each hand. This attempt explores how physical repetition can be used to both take the performer and the audience into an experience that involves more then their present moment of being.
