'Projected onto two screen surfaces is a video image of the artist sitting with her back to the viewer, banging her head at regular intervals. The first projected image is located at the far end of the small room with a dusty mirror surface placed on the floor resembling the Chinese Earth God's temple or ancestral tablet. The second image is projected onto a piece of latex that was cast from the artist's back and bears the impressions of her skin and hair, it is suspended in the middle of the space by red threads stretched to the room's corners.'
