Eric Clinton Anderson – March 16, 2011

Eric Clinton Anderson (www.ericclintonanderson.com)
performs his piece:
Character Study

.

Character Study is a performance that draws the abstraction of financial identity into the realm of the tangible. While wearing a suit of painter’s coveralls covered with his social security, bank account, credit card and other “identifying” numbers, artist Eric Clinton Anderson covers the walls of the gallery with hatchmarks representing the exact amount of cumulative student loan debt (calculated to the day) he amassed while achieving his MFA degree.

  1. Congratulations Superman Robinson Crusoe: great performance acted out. I am sorry I could not attend and experience your performance. It feels visceral and urgent from the still photographs. Bravo.
