Let me start off by saying, as a person in the audience observing this piece, this was a most fantastic feature and likely one of the best I'll see all year! Though I'm usually not one for the "audience participation," I enjoyed the special effects, visuals and certain feeling that I was in the room the entire time for Kirk's every little pain in his gut from too much coffee and the super-annoying headache he got from having to write an email to that one particular "colleague" of his who he's trying to dump. Again, as an observer, I really had to appreciate the effort made on part of the artist to take me along for the bumpy ride. It's not a ride I'll likely go on again, but I definitely went away from this "trip" feeling like it was a worthwhile experience. From every little cracking of Kirk's neck at his desk to actually listening to a credit card debt collector's entire schpiell, I would say that A Day of Kirk is a must-see for everyone!

As the picture opened, full grays and blues meshed into a fog-like dissolve with just enough sun peaking through a nearby window that I could not see -- and then straight to black again. It was very subtle at first, and then bold as fast as you could close your eyes. (And Kirk did.) I felt the artist was really giving us that "look, this is how a day starts for Kirk," feel, and it worked. I felt very much like the main character, and that I, too, was just about to wake.

Right off the bat, I very much enjoyed the dream the artist allowed Kirk to have when awaking that morning -- on a scale of 1-10, I'd say it was an 8 1/2
