Presenting visual and performance art in unexpected public spaces.


Farming + LVLUP!

For the performance Farming + LVLUP! Hoefle reinterprets the process of videogame farming in a physical, public space. She “farms” paper gems through the repetitive process of cutting, folding, and gluing small gem sculptures that will then be given away to passersby for free. With each gem Hoefle gives away, an 8-bit sound effect will play through an amp, indicating that that she or a passerby has “LVLed UP.” Through the free distribution of these handcrafted gems to others, one can earn +1 spirit, +1 stamina, +1 intelligence, and +1 strength as a player.
