On the 21st of October 2017 I performed 'Sisyphean Action' on O'Sullivan Beach, South Australia as part of  SUE - Series of Unexpected Events curated by Paul Gazzola for the Onkaparinga City Council  and OSCA.

We had 30ºC the previous weekend so had planned for a sunny day with a friendly dog walking audience and some beautiful sunset images. The reality was a lot colder 11ºC and more overcast.

 I had some dedicated audience members and some more transient walking audience. Perhaps due to the fact that they were walking quickly past in the cold, I soon realised that in order for my actions to be noticed I needed to perform for longer so chose to work with all four of the rocks at each performance - I had initially planned to increase the rock size throughout the day and only perform with each rock once, so it ended up being a very gruelling day.. see relief below post final rock lift!
