People tell me what to say and I tell them what to say, in everyday social life since 2017.
The work is called "Equal Opportunity to be a Dictator". It is less callous than what it seems as it comes with more flexibility too.
People are reminded there are boundaries, that these can be offers not necessarily demands and nobody has to do or say anything the other offers them, everybody does it by choice as much as they feel ok to.

LIVE 10 MINUTE PIECE
In exhibiting this work for the 10 minute live piece, I will give an induction (with examples) to the audience of how to speak in Equal Opportunity to be a Dictator. The audience are offer audiences a pendant, if they choose to wear it, it shows they are ok to speak in this way with anyone else who also wears it in the audience. I will then allow the audience 5 minutes to try it out in different ways with each-other. After this ten minutes of inductions and trial for the audience to speak this way with each-other, they can then keep the pendant and should they wish to wear it, they can speak to anyone (the ones who choose to wear the pendant) when they feel in the night. There is no obligation, only invitation.
REGULAR EXHIBITION TIME
Videos can be shown during the rest of the exhibition.
