Site Specific > Ollie Ollie Oxen free

Ollie Ollie Oxen free is a Smores delivery tent. The performer enters the structure to discover safety and privacy in a moment of social disfunction and uneasiness. Smores supplies are nestled in the space and the smell of the candle illuminates the onion paper tent. When the smores are ready to serve, a restaurant bell is rung. A small trap door is opened, and a hand reaches out for a visitor to reach up to receive one.

Ollie Ollie Oxen Free is the slogan used in the children's' game of hide and seek when the seeker is looking for you once they have given up. Smores are the desert of fire roasted marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate sandwiched together, and made usually while camping around a campfire. Ollie Ollie Oxen Free explores privacy and comfort in large impersonal social events, control for gift giving interaction, waiting, communities and interaction based around surprises and the transmission of edible information.
