“All The Places I’ve Lived” was an installation and site-specific performance by Bill Talsma. Talsma created architectural-style floorplan drawings from memory of the fifteen places he lived which have been permanently printed on the surface of fifteen separate 4’ x 3’ dry erase boards. Part sculpture, part drawing project, part sound event, part performance, the original presentation of these objects included a handful of volunteer performers who became Talsma’s voice. Audiences were encouraged to come and go as they pleased throughout the duration of the performance.
