Post Bed-In Bed Net Blues

I learnt a few things on saturday watching the public walk past Viv and I during our Bed-In:

1) I have discovered a whole new world of performance art and I love it.
2) I realised that there giving good lectures and lab practical sessions to students often include elements of performance art. I noticed whether people were being engaged or bored and you get into that ‘zone’ where the audience is 100% with you.
3) Being inside a bed net and sharing a bed with someone is very good for breaking down barriers…..
4) Beds in art galleries and public spaces should be encouraged.
