42. THE TAXI

In Ostankino district (on the opposite side of Khovansky gates of VDNKh) across an alley at 20:00 the participants of the performance stretched six fishing-lines, parallel to each other. Ends of these lines were attached to trees at heights varying from 60 to 100 centimeters. Space between the lines varied from 10 to 15 meters.

As soon as the lines had been stretched, E. Elagina went to Korolyov street to catch a taxi, while other participants highlighted the six lines with flashlights against a camera installed at one end of the alley, so that six lines on the imprint formed the Hsu hexagram ("Necessity of waiting").

In five minutes the taxi appeared and while driving through the alley broke the fishing lines.

In the course of theaction two soundtracks were recorded: the first one in the alley by a tree to which the last line was attached (the black box of "The Music of concordance" object with working transistor inside was standing beside the tree) and the second one in the taxi (recorded by E. Elagina).
