“Temple” is a one-on-one performance that has had various iterations. In this performance, visitors are prompted to “sit down & ring bell”. This action initiates the performance— a mock spiritual reading that is forecast by a series of interactive choices the participant makes. The entire performance is silent, and the supplicant is gifted a small talisman to take with them.
