Sunday February 25, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.
Artistic intervention titled Egg Puja with international performance artist Paula Kohatsu.

Kohatsu (see photos below) will offer an Egg Puja to honor the sculpture Digital DNA. The sculpture, slated to be removed by the city of Palo Alto, is in the shape of a seven foot tall egg and is a symbol of Eros (sexual instinct) and Thanatos (death instinct). A puja is a ritual of devotional worship.

The ritual will bring audience participation and a collective wrapping process of the artist to the egg as a sacrifice of endurance to keep the art alive where it belongs and where it has been for the past 13 years.

The artist will be tied to the sculpture by the public.

For more information on the sculpture and/or to sign a petition to save it from the city ordered demolition visit URL below.
