The Art of Luv (Part 6): Awesome Grotto!

A ritual performance based on the Ancient Greek Mysteries of Eleusis and Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, channeled through the reperformance of a single unpopular shopping “haul” video posted to YouTube on Labor Day 2013 and later deleted by its creator.

Central to this ritual is a live confessional performed inside a giant reverse camera obscura. Mediated only by a simple lens, this confessional ceremonially reimagines the now-mundane act of looking into the camera and sharing a story with the world.
