For his very complicated performance at the Oosterpoort (see Stelarc — Event for Amplified Body, Automatic Arm and Third Arm) Stelarc decided to perform in public in the ‘Video Pavilion‘ by architect Bernard Tschumi, as a try-out. He performed inside the pavilion, that has glass walls all around. The space did not allow for the full performance (for example: no Light Globe Grid). It was a last minute decision by Stelarc after seeing the pavillion. The organisation quickly made and distributed a flyer, mainly at the Groningen art school and music conservatory. This resulted in a fair amount of public attending and press coverage.
