My concept:
I did something prosaic.

Description of your performance

This is a part of the ideas from #CreativeSprint that is to make a legal impermanent graffiti in a public space. 

I drew a cat face with cat food as installation in my front yard. 

Normally I give the cat food in a bowl but she came and ate her face which I thought that it is funny. Off course she did not realize that it is her face, but I think that makes to complete the performance, as “a Cat Eating the Cat Face.”

About the collage, in my daily life, I like to pick up trash on the street in my neighborhood and sometime make some art out of. The base paper for this collage is a political Kyosanto campaign poster (the Japanese Communist 
Party) which was thrown away after the election and were damped in the ditch. 4 photographs from “a cat eating the cat food” project, a trash from seaweed container, paper trash, and pamphlet from the US tourist places are also attached to elaborate my daily life.
