Performance by Rebecca Collins & Owen Parry, 2006
She's got a handbag full of nails, he's got a pillow full of feathers, they both invite people to dip their hands in have a feel around and leave a story to be read aloud anonymously.
Each written story is shredded at the threshhold between Hard and Soft.
HARD SOFT is a site specific performance and installation in 2 parts: an interactive collection of memories (1) and a regurgitation of those fragmented memories anonymously along with the performers personal memories and responses as they traverse the performance space in pain and in comfort (2)
