84. THE CROSSING (For Oleg Kulik)

Oleg Kulik, Nikolay Panitkov

O. Kulik was prompted to cross the territory of the Secret Oak-grove of the Central Botanical Garden (the size of the grove – approximately 350x200 meters), moving from south northwards along the center.

Before starting the crossing Kulik was given a tape recorder with a 15-minutes long soundtrack consisting of author’s reading (dated 1998) of a dialogue between Yu. Leiderman and A.Monastyrsky (dated 1991) named "Yellow dogs in the Secret Oak-grove" from a MANA compilation titled "Rivers, lakes, meadows".

Following the verbal instruction, Kulik reached the center of the grove, listened to the end of the soundtrack, set the tape recorder to record mode, photographed himself (using automatic release) in the presumable center and left the Secret Oak-grove northwards.
