Performed at Tilraunakvöld LHÍ / IAA Experimental Night, Mengi.
I brought out the long list of phone numbers of audiences collected before the performance,
and paste it on the wall.
Then, I would face my back towards the audience and
throw a dart on the paper to randomly select a phone number.
Unfortunately, the dart kept bouncing off the wall.
Luckily I had a Plan B,
I took out a piece of cooked spaghetti and threw it on the wall,
and I successfully selected a phone number.
I would call this number while I am still facing my back towards the audience.
The selected audience’s phone rang,
and I had a conversation with this audience without knowing who the person is.
When the phone call finishes,
I took down the paper of phone numbers and light it up in a metal bucket filled with white sage,
so eventually as the list of phone numbers are destroyed
the strong smell of incense and smoke filled up the room.
