It is a social survey performance. Not only are the first-hand experiences of the participants are important, but the experiences that the viewers have with the documentation of the piece is a significant factor as well.

For this project, I made a questionnaire for three people: the interviewer, the interviewee, a stranger who is willing to participate, and the interviewee’s friend.


These are the questions:


Four questions that were asked to the interviewees:


-What is your first impression of the interviewer?

– Based on the interviewer’s first impression, would you like to know more about the interviewer?

– How would you describe yourself?

– Do you think how other people describe your personality matches how you describe your self?


Two questions that were asked to the friends of interviewees:


-How would you describe your friend (the interviewee)?

– Do you think your friend’s first impression describes his/her real personality?


Two questions that were asked to the interviewer:


-What is your first impression of the interviewee?

– Based on the interviewee’s first impression, would you like to know more about the interviewee?


Throughout this experience, I wanted to engage with more people, to see if people are able to objectively judge themselves, and to know if a first impression is reliable. Choosing to let the viewer to have their own judgments to the performance, I left the documentation in its rough form rather than analyzing it.


The performance was successful, because I was able to meet new various people, and show the viewers the result of different traits. The performance was unsuccessful in a way that it didn’t show many people enough to make a valid conclusion. I was not able to push this performance any further to anything more than psychological research.
