Abstract/Description: This thesis, an interdisciplinary project entitled DEAD ELEMENTS, seeks to explore the complex relationship between performance and text. Seven common literary elements were selected and then interpreted both in a performative action and a written work. The work engages the traditions of both performance art and conceptual writing, blurring the distinction between physical body and textual body. Ultimately, DEAD ELEMENTS serves as a critique of academic literature, a reification of abstractions, a meditation on the body, and an engagement with my own idiosyncratic artistic practice.
