Following a predetermined order, five performers would blow a bubble gum to which food colouring had been added.Then, they would leave the space to receive a new bubble gum in a different colour and come back, starting chewing again.
The same colour would spread from one person to the other until a new colour would come up, spreading to the rest of the group again. And again. ‘At the speed of feelings’ is a response to the “big waves” of shared emotional response we show to online “trending topics”, as I have the impression that they are piling up layer on layer bringing us towards an emotional overdose.
