You, our esteemed Gainesville Public & Media, are cordially invited to attend the ground breaking ceremony for Performance Artist Tom Miller's "Instillation" of Nothing at the newly renovated Downtown Bo Diddley Plaza.
This happening will occur May 31, 2016 at precisely 5pm. Mr. Miller and his crew will be available to answer questions, and photographs of the initial phase of this near two-week project are encouraged. There will be a small ribbon cutting ceremony. Nothing will be provided.
At 5pm, Mr. Miller will cut a ribbon, and Miller and his crew will begin loading nothing into the plaza. The crew will be working for 15 minutes (Mr. Miller can only afford 15 minutes per day because most people gave nothing to support the event.)
Each afternoon there after until and including June 4th, a crew will continue "Instilling" nothing into the plaza under the direction of Mr. Miller, and this will all be assembled into a giant sculpture of nothing. Nothing will occupy the plaza for five days, during which time the public is encouraged to interact with nothing and take photos of nothing. On June 9th, Mr. Miller's crew will take three days to remove nothing from the plaza (again, beginning at 5pm each day) until nothing remains in the plaza.
At the conclusion of nothing, nothing will have happened.
We hope you will join us for this event. This is the first time in history that nothing has been presented as a sculpture of three-dimensions in such a large scale.
Please add this event to your calendars, and we look forward to welcoming you to nothing.
WHEN: 5pm-5:15pm Tuesday, May 31st 2016.
