Thoughts on Rubber Tit

I have to say, I was a little bit blown away by the performance…I can’t say I’ve ever seen something remotely similar.

Until Tari-san and Masa explained a little bit about the motivation for the performance and how it is actually supposed to be interactive, I almost felt uncomfortable. However, being a part of the experience of the performance lightened the mood enough that I didn’t feel like I had to intently stare at this giant breast sliding across the floor in front of me.

I think my favorite part of the whole experience was when Masa explained how her life is music, and not words. As a musician and a psychology student, I found it amazing that some people are still able to connect music with things most people wouldn’t deem musical. As youngsters, our brains are so interconnected that it is sometimes possible to “see” music; and I feel that people like Masa are still able to do that. I found it intriguing how she described Tari as her music–as if Tari’s motions were notes drawn on a page of lined paper. The constant interaction between the two was almost energizing.

As a piece of feminist and lesbian performance art, I think the idea of freeing the tit from the “closet” was also unique. It corresponds perfectly with Tari’s description of coming out. I find it exceedingly cute, too, that Tari admitted she has a bit of a latex fetish.
