The action consisted in a group of viewers-participants walking along the river bank of Yauza, and in drawing of "golden lines" in three places-stops* onto SH's factography from 1992 (on a 100 cm x 65 cm large photograph, on a foamboard, the following group was depicted: P. Pepperstein, M. Chuikova, V. Zakharov, A. Anufriev, A. Mareev and A. Monastyrski, around Udaltsova street).
Hereafter, on the footbridges above Yauza (fourth place-stop **) a photograph was raffled off by means of an I Ching app on the smartphone; beforehand the viewers were given cards, onto which they wrote down numbers from 1 to 64; the one viewer, whose number on the card was closest to the worked-out number of the I Ching, has won, and that was no. 32 – "Duration" , which turned out to be Yu. Ovchinnikova's card, which had the number 37.
*1st stop was below the railway bridge of the Yaroslavskaya railway line, at the place of the actions no. 78 and no. 86. 2nd stop was at the place of action no. 138 and of the Bochum action from 1990 "Polaroid". 3rd stop was opposite the place of actions no. 25 (draft variant from 1981), no. 113, no. 143 and no. 145.
** 4th stop was at the place of action no. 143.
