Performance work otherwise described in archive materials as “Interviewing members of the public RE: importance (or otherwise) of art, in their lives”.

‘One of the “days work” performances this work included a great deal of participation from others. MacLennan either sat on a bench talking to people who joined him, and taking notes, or he approached passers by.’
