Installation Based Performance Action: As you drive to the beach in Nida, you admire nature and watch for animals on the road. You notice a sign that warns of a waving man ahead. On your right, above an Art Academy sign you see a man sitting on a swing. His green uniform raises questions about his role as performer, artist or worker. He is smiling and waving. Without thinking, you wave back and find yourself smiling as you continue on your way.

“Wave” is an action conceived to bridge the visual gap between Nida Art Colony and public space, between you and me.
