Excerpt from Inward Gazes: Documentaries of Chinese Performance Art 2012, The Macao Museum of Art, Macau S.A.R., 2012, p. 128: 'This work is performed through an activity: members of 8MG collect abandoned wooden boards from different locations of Chongqing City (Chongqing's business areas, rural-urban fringes, neighbourhoods undergoing demolition). The boards are crashed by nailing and pulling the nails out from them; the duration of this activity is not consistent. This performance art is completed in the manner of constantly destroying and rebuilding.'

The performance took place at U Warehouse in Huangjueping, Chongqing, China.
