I found the John Harvard statue to be a great representation of the cultural mystique surrounding “Ivy League” that I’m interested in for my project. Its status as a landmark. The historical inaccuracies surrounding it. The traditions of hopeful prospective students rubbing his shoe for good luck and current students urinating on the statue, maybe to troll everybody, maybe as a pledge task. Participating in the traditions at each of the Ivies is part of my project, so of course I had to venture out one night to give John Harvard a good spray. I couldn’t get a useful picture since it was so dark, so here’s a picture of me rubbing the shoe the next morning instead. I’ll probably need the luck anyway. I was pleased to find the statue surrounded by hopeful parents, feeling up on John’s feet and happily taking snapshots of each other. Perhaps they were all trying to ignore it, but the piss stains were so fresh you can still see them in this picture (look under the shoe). What a smug look of satisfaction on that man’s face. Appalling? Foul? Perhaps. But thinking about the rich history of Amerca’s highest achieving students peeing on the statue before me certainly made me feel that much more “Ivy League.” #harvard #travel #statues #tradition #ivyleagueproject  (at John Harvard Statue)

Performance where I teach Harvard students Performance Art. Lesson #1: Marina AbramoviΔ‡. Such bright students… Someone brought an onion to class and started eating it which didn’t smell great but I am happy she ‘gets it’. #performanceart #harvard #travel #teach #art #ivyleagueproject  (at Harvard University)
