durational performance: 4 hours
Studio Specht; Tokyo, Japan. 2004
For 100 Yen, participants choose from a vast array of colored/textured/flavored condoms one of their liking. I then prepare it with a couple of scissor snips, turning the condom into a rectangular sheet of latex. Holding this over my lips, I proceed to engage in kissing my "client". The nature of the kiss (chaste or otherwise) is dependent upon the nonverbal cues exchanged by both parties during the act.
