SCRIPT For one month, my life was collaboratively scripted, one day at a time, by anyone on the internet. Each day, anyone was welcome to add dialogue, setting, costume, and stage directions to my script for the next day. At midnight, the script was closed for editing and it became the basis for the performance of my life the following day.For one month, I gave control of my life to the internet. Every day, a script of my life for the following day (called the 'Tomorrow Script') was posted online. For example, on January 31st, the script for February 1st was posted.
Anyone that visited the site was able to edit the Tomorrow Script, wiki style. Participants could script lines for me, stage directions, costumes, settings, etc. They could also write themselves into my script. They could make additions as well as remove or modify previously created script content. The participants could choose to make their edits anonymously or not. At midnight, the Tomorrow Script was closed for editing, becoming the script of my life for the next day, posted on the site as the 'Today Script'.
Throughout the day, I would make every attempt to perform every line and detail of the script, though improvisation beyond the script was allowed. This was a durational performance that lasted for one month non-stop.
So as not to detract from the experience of living and performing for me and the script contributors, I kept only minimal documentation, capturing occasional photos or videos with my camera phone. In addition, I maintained a public daily blog where I reflected each night on the day's performance and the project as it evolved.
