APPLAUSE performance verified for world record

"APPLAUSE," world record performance at the Walker Art Center's Open Field from Dustin Luke Nelson on Vimeo.

My performance of APPLAUSE at the Walker Art Center's Open Field in June has officially been verified by Guinness World Records as the world record for "Longest Applause."

I'm excited to have it verified, but I'm even more excited that it gave me an opportunity to revisit the performance. There are a number of people -- friends, Walker Art Center staff, volunteers -- who made it happen and I'm endlessly appreciative to them for all they gave to the performance. Thanks to everyone who helped make it work.

Above is a time lapse video of the full two-hour performance.
