This performance was done in a small room illuminated only by the glow from the spiral coil of a hot plate. For a period of one hour, Nina Wise spun in circles with small battery powered lights attached to her wrists as I walked in large circles along the walls playing an iron “dinner bell” triangle (Fox 2000: 113)
