  • Individuals alternate the preferred position and then allow each other to leave the confines of the awkward construction. Using two appropriated desks, this work also comments on the nature of how information is often absorbed. The desks suggest a certain level of a controlled situation, in this context the autonomy of the “learner” is reduced further by the constant balancing and repositioning of the individuals occupying the sculpture.  https://vimeo.com/63066314  
  • When the viewer/participant is present in the piece it forces a degree of normalcy the two combined forms. When the individual leaves it becomes an absurdly impossible object.  https://vimeo.com/63102122
  • This work is a study in considering what is the dominant component in a relationship between competing movements and postures. Is the individual at rest in control of the structure, or is it the person in a higher position?  https://vimeo.com/63102126
  • In this work the mechanical structures of the chairs are tied together, creating a complex system allowing the possibility to sit in only one chair out of the three. The competition to sit in this piece goes on until almost complete collapse of the linked structure.  https://vimeo.com/41224902
  • Jack Pavlik updated the Artwork Zero Sum Sitting 2
    Where some of the performative videos are presented as a game, this piece has the viewer/participant confined to the interior of the sculpture. The competition and the denial of allowing another person a position of repose becomes self-defeating to the point that the viewer is unaware and yet trapped in the work at the same time.  https://vimeo.com/63101733
  •   In this performative work, participants were given minimal instructions on how to interact with the work, and a certain degree of improvisation was allowed. The object is manipulated into a shelter, becomes a confusing object, and a temporary resting place. The frustrating construction of appropriated forms becomes symbolic of a failed “one size fits all” solution.  https://vimeo.com/63101737
  • This performative work is a comic portrayal of cooperation as it related to the idea of the "zero sum game". In the end the self-defeating competition is revealed in the collapse of the system.  https://vimeo.com/41225031
  •   In this work, a mechanism is dominated by an individual who repeatedly denies the actions of an opposing group. These questions are intentionally ambiguous in the narrative of this piece: Is this the act of being stubbornly defensive or aggressive denial? Is this an individual’s victory over a group of individuals that oppose his ideas, or someone who will not allow another point of view?  https://vimeo.com/63102124
  • This work offers the realization of the “zero sum game” to the viewer/participant. When the viewer leaves the piece, their implication of the deprivation of allowing a second person to sit is made obvious by the contorted movements created by their absence. https://vimeo.com/63102123
