Excerpt from Inward Gazes: Documentaries of Chinese Performance Art 2012, The Macao Museum of Art, Macau S.A.R., 2012, p. 33: 'I had a photograph taken together with 182 primary students from Gangcha County (Qinghai Province) respectively, each of us holding a balloon. Each photograph was preserved along with a hair of the student; on the reverse side of each photograph is a signed agreement to meet each other again in ten years, and every ten years I will take a photograph and collect a strand of hair from each of the students who remains willing to participate in the performance as long as there is breath in our bodies.'

The performance took place in Qinghai, China
