BLOW HERE

BLOW HERE

(1983)

The object consists of a small elongated black box with the inscription “BLOW HERE” in the upper portion of its facing side. In the lower part of the box's facing side is a metal tube, yellow in color. If the participant of the action realizes that he needs to blow onto the label itself, the object falls over, and on its base he finds a label with the name of the object: "A.M. E.P # 11 'Blow here.' Moscow, 1983."

The object is installed on a black surface behind the sign "Do not touch." On the podium beneath the box is a note that reads "Put back in place," which is discovered when the box falls over.
