I participated in a global event commemorating the 20th anniversary of Tiananmen Square. My dear friend, Bernicci, e-mailed me information about the project and I instantly decided to join. I had used video of the Tank Man in an installation I did in 1997 and have always found it such moving imagery. I sent out a mass e-mail, was joined by one wonderful person, Dana, and we were witnessed by three friends as we performed the Tank Man Tango in front of St. Catharines City Hall on June 4 at 4:00 pm. Athena attended and was roped into photographing. The website for this event is www.forget2forget.com – check it out. Here are a few video traces provided by the Sydney, Australia artist and organizer, Deborah Kelly:
