59. PEOPLE STROLLING IN THE DISTANCE ARE THE EXTRA ELEMENT OF THE ACTION

The invited audience (15 persons) was brought by one of the action’s organizers to a shallow rectangular pit dug in a field. On the pit’s bottom there were battery-powered electrical rings in envelopes arranged in two rows (12 pieces, size of envelopes 18x25 cm). They were already switched on by the time of arrival of the audience (the organizers moved away some 50-60 meters away from the pit).

Upon each envelope with a ring inside there was a label with text: “PEOPLE STROLLING IN THE DISTANCE ARE THE EXTRA ELEMENT OF THE ACTION”.

The audience was prompted to wait for the rings to stop ringing (due to depleted batteries) and then pick up the envelopes with rings as the action’s factography.
