A proposal for artwork
By Trevor H. Smith
The artist will appear in the background of photographs taken by tourists in the city of Bath.
The artist will predict the moment that a tourist is about to take a photograph
The artist will then take up a position behind the person(s) in the picture and remain stationary until he is satisfied that the picture has been taken.
The artist will employ an assistant whose task is to occupy a position behind the tourist-photographer. From here the assistant will capture an image containing the tourist-photographer, the tourist and the artist in the background.
Together with this proposal, one image will be selected and shown as documentation of the event.
