In the video (2005), Benedetta Panisson cries or laughs, alternately, to herself, or at the public, depending from the interpretation. During the live performance (exhibited during the "Galleria dell'Amore" contest, a preselection/exhibition preliminar to the participation at the International Prize for Performance, both curated by Marina Abramovic) the artist caresses herself waiting for somebody to sit next to her; when somebody sits, she stops caressing herself and starts caressing public. The performance took place at Galleria Civica di Arte Contemporanea, Trento with the active participation of about 80 people.
