How does it work?
Step One: Each participant will exchange five minute timed portraits with partners seated across a long communal table. As the bell rings, they will move one seat over at the table, greet a new partner and do another five minute timed portrait. As the round robin proceeds, each participant will accumulate a group of their own drawings of the other people at the table, while they sit for portraits of themselves. Participants will keep their own drawings.
Step Two: When the round robin is completed, participants will create a wall-sized grid: portraits of the participants horizontally, portraits by them vertically.
“What Do You Really Look Like?” is a free workshop created by artist Peter Walsh for Michael Cataldi and Nils Norman’s University of Trash.
