During a party I made an installation at the entrance with wooden walls and a wooden floor. I lay under the floor, supporting the wood with my body. My head and chest were visible through a window in the floor. Before I had inflicted wounds on my head and chest. After 3 hours I stopped because some spectators were reacting too aggressive.
