"Seven days is the length of a guest's life." - Burmese Proverb

The Inflatable Mattress is a series of interactive performances in which I will serve as a houseguest over the course of 13 weeks (February 1- May 3, 2011). Each visit will last 7 days (Tuesday- Monday). Hosts are free to assign chores (with the exception of laundering intimate apparel) and work may not exceed a total of 10 hours. Hosts should be available for a minimum of three shared meals. These meals may take place at the home, restaurant, dinner party, etc.

I will be traveling with an inflatable mattress as well as appropriate linens and towels. All of my gear will be contained in a backpack with an internal frame. Each visit is an improvisational interaction that will be documented in various forms on TheInflatableMattress.blogspot.com
