Oh man, too bad you weren’t here when we made this artwork. It was a real event, so much fun! I laughed so hard I dropped my hoop several times… “Move! C’mon, keep it spinning,” all the boys behind the camera yelled. “Swirl it, girl!” they shouted. It’s not that easy guys, have you ever tried doing that for even 5 minutes? The world hula record, by the way, stands at 74:54 hours. Can you believe it? Don’t get me wrong, I love doing this. You could almost call me a devotee, and I’m proud of myself for being part of an age-old tradition – did you know people have been swirling hoops for over 2000 years? See, this isn’t just mindless fun, it’s history. It’s heritage. It’s ART. Hua La La! [Katharina Droste]
