My thought process when linking my outcomes back to my concept is a mind map of links, thinking of them as correlations with what Performance means. Some carry clear attributes such as musical performers and artists, however the process of capturing the audience has made me think about how much they add to the atmosphere; the way they dance, react, interact with each other and the performer. It moves the term Performance from the literal sense to metaphorical. The audience isn’t consciously performing, however they are choosing they’re mannerisms in order to present themselves individually in a specific way. Through the process of removing my self from being a performer or an audience member, I get to experience an outsider perspective, unconsciously watching people as an observer without them necessarily realising. When photographing events I consciously try to go unnoticed in attempt capture scenes as though I were apart of them.
