A.A.S Artist Talk

aasfrontmaptransp

A.A.S is a group of artists who practise the arts in different forms, such as performance, installation, ritual, and art which requires public participation. Although many do require public interaction, the performances by the group aren’t always directed to an audience.

The performance the group at Reading done for us was made from them completing different acts and tasks decided for them by rolling a dice. Through the rolling of the dice it leaves the acts in the group a matter of chance, requiring the group to often improvise on certain parts. The group also used a technique which they called ’emotional flooding’ to release emotionally repressed things.

I wasn’t influenced by them, but I did feel like I was watching something completely new. Whether I enjoyed watching it is a different matter altogether.
