Context: I mainly create durational works while the maximum length of Michelle’s work is around 5 minutes. We decided to trade durations to see what could happen.

Action: I covered my mouth with mint white toothpaste and stick it to the wall. I then slide my mouth around the space, marking the entire contours of the space. I then put more layers of white toothpaste and put my mouth in a glass of water, standing in the center of the space motionless. The smell of mint toothpaste was filling the space.
