"Performance Crafting: Felt Me" is about the artist as object and expanding her process to include more community based work in a very personal way that is still related to her own work. The performance was based on the techniques that Tanya is best known for (felting) and applying it to the artist's own body to experience what her pieces go though. It was also a means to connect the people that support her work with hand-worked processes while forming a deeper connection with Tanya. The group formed a deeper bond through Tanya having to trust them to make a work that represents her very literally, and through sharing a very intimate experience.
