You Are It is a transmedia public artwork designed to effect meaningful changes in art, sustainability, youth fitness, aviation, and social practice. The main event is a choreographed performance for 3,000 people and an airplane at a defunct airport runway in Brooklyn. 3,000 people will engage in a playground game of Tag where the role of “It” is virally communicated among players. In a home-built, human-powered-hybrid-electric aircraft, Vidich will perform aerial choreography like a conductor. These maneuvers orchestrate the Tag runners while simultaneously capturing video of the game from aloft. This footage and related media will show on commercial jets as interactive in-flight entertainment. The entire production process will be chronicled into a feature length documentary.
