Running for the bus

Performance
Over a one day period I decided to make serious efforts to catch busses that pull away from the bus stop and were just beyond catching. I also carried two large plastic bags of shopping just to make my point obvious. Throughout the day I ran for and missed sixty three busses. I had a friend film a one hour period of this activity
1999

Performance McCormack’s music shop
In the window of McCormack’s music shop on Glasgow’s Bath Street, David Sherry is eating biscuits. He is sitting on a homemade island constructed from chicken wire and papier-mâché. Every day until Christmas, he will spend five hours in McCormack’s window watching TV and munching through packet after packet of biscuits. He doesn’t do very much. He just sits and eats. It’s a response to the bloated inertia of the Christmas holiday period, a time when slobbing out in front of the telly becomes a national sport. Contrary to expectations, Sherry is not trying to make the obvious, Geldolf-style Christmas point about over-indulgence, rampant capitalism and starvation in the developing world. And although his sugar intake is reminiscent of Super Size Me, the documentary film in which Morgan Spurlock subjected himself to a life-threatening diet of McDonald’s burgers, Sherry is not trying to break any endurance records. He is content to go home for a normal life each evening.
