Don’t Think; Just Do is a representation of a common phrase spoken by many gymnastics coaches while motivating their gymnasts. “Don’ think, just go!” It is said at a time of intense nervousness before doing a new, most likely dangerous, skill. It reminds the gymnasts to turn off their mind and trust their muscles. Don’t Think; Just Do explores mark-making and human scale and seeks to document the visual space in-between start and stop.
The exhibit will be changing daily as the artist will be adding to it.
