As a performance artist, I want to insert a sense of play into everyday activities. Mile Share, operating out of a storefront, is a performance in which passersby are invited to join me in running or walking a mile of Kitchener. Each participant will choose a mile which has personal significance. After completion, we will freshen up in the storefront and take a photograph. These photographs along with maps and motivational music will form a growing installation in the storefront.
