Let Grass Grow Over It

Description: A performance piece for the opening night of each event. Me and a close Thai girl friend of mine were hidden underneath the bed naked. The viewers could stick their hands into any of the 40 holes cut into the top. They could not see us through the covered up holes, but could communicate only through touch. We responded to the viewers only if they were being very inappropriate (mostly that discouraged them.) We encouraged viewers, who were scared.
