I DANCE DANCE DANCE je série performancí, ve které Smiljanić pracuje s různými jevy a vztahy v rámci komplexního systému soudobé kultury (např. postavení umělce v tomto systému hierarchie a vzájemná závislost jeho součástí) přizváním lidí z různých společenských okruhů, aby vybrali hudbu pro její tanec.
I DANCE DANCE DANCE is the performance series in which Smiljanić deals with various phenomena and relations within a complex system of contemporary culture (e.g. the position of an artist in this system’s hierarchy or the interdependency of its subjects), by inviting people from certain social contexts to choose music for her dancing.

Depending on a play-list length, the performance lasts 50–190 minutes.
This performance took place on Nov 24th 2009 in ISCP Gallery in New York. Music for the performance was chosen by well known characters and emerging artists of the New York art scene. The performance was a part from A Dense Dance exhibition with András Cséfalvay.

Chewing and Spitting (C&S) is a video piece that deals with a subject of a newly emerged eating disorder. The affected person chews the food but doesn’t swallow, thus satisfying the natural hunger craving and taste receptors, whilst avoiding the consequences of regular food intake – consumption without absorption. The emotional process underlying this disorder is different to those found in anorexia and bulimia nervosa patients -emotional suppression and feeling of an enormous emotional emptiness – mostly in intensity of emotional tension > fetish-object and pleasure-fear. The phenomenon of C&S is be recognized as an ideologically and socially conditioned behavior developed in a society of global consumption – one that glorifies hedonism and pleasure of consuming, but also imposes the media construct of ideal body.
