Periscope App. This is an app that works on phone and tablet primarily, so I could set it up on my pad. Turner Contemporary were streaming a lot of events in their gallery on the day too.
This meant I could watch Jon Adams's performance in Games with the Waterhorse, at home before I went down to the gallery in the afternoon.
Yesterday Orimoto took the Loop bus from Broadstairs to Margate as Bread Man, he is filmed on these performances, and at Turner Contemporary, I watched his travels on the bus before he arrived, smiling at the other passengers expressions to this strange sight.
The weather was terrible, really strong winds, so it was a struggle for Orimoto to walk to the gallery, where he also held a drawing performance, Breadman Performs Lies and signed pieces of bread for visitors.

I enjoyed seeing him and watching the performances, Orimoto intrigued me, an elderly Japanese artist, who has been performing Breadman for 30 years or more across the world, he was engaging with a sense of humour and obvious love for his mother, who is also a part of his life and art.
Artist Ruth Proctor also performed OK, Set, Drop at one of the exhibits in the Risk exhibition. I watched and filmed as Proctor climbed the 4metre scaffolding and dropped backwards onto a stack of cardboard boxes, with a loud bang.

So good to see these events, which left me with a desire to find out more about the artists, especially
why they were doing the things they were doing.
