When visitors arrive to the event, I choose a person and ask her or him if they would collaborate with me in a performance. It would be their duty to hold my hair when I assume a certain pose.

At the beginning of the performance, I will find a calm spot and use my fingers to comb my hair in front of my face. When a thick curtain of hair covers my face, I get up and move slowly through the space with a significantly restricted field of view, step by step.

I then assume the mentioned pose and wait for my partner. As soon as they grasp my hair, I shift my bodyweight backwards very slowly. Depending on their reaction, I either sink to the ground gently, pending on all of my hair roots, or I fall down violently.
