Three examples of work by Dillon de Give.
Long Walks on the Beach, was a public project that provided a framework to literally enact a cliché with a stranger. In Rockaway Beach NYC, randomly paired strangers took a long walk together. This was an experience-based artwork that used walking as its medium.
laH illustrates how a coyote might find its way into Manhattan with a reverse human journey out of the city: a hike retracing a potential coyote-like path through greenspaces. Citing examples of juvenile coyotes that have made long dispersal trips, the walk averages around 50-60 miles.
Comprensión de mi Coleccíon de Chistes A collection of jokes on camera by men in Michoacán Mexico. Gathered in the surrounding areas while I was at Guapamacátaro artist residency. The collection of jokes was compiled onto a DVD, and DVDs were given back to all people that told me jokes. Upon arrival back to the United States I have been attempting to subtitle the videos with my limited knowledge of Spanish.
