25 minutes at Emily Carr University, Vancouver, Canada

I ask audiences to stand in a line and take off their shoes. I go to an audience, hold his/her hands, look his/her eyes and I say “I LOVE YOU” without sound. The audience can only figure out what I said through the movement of my lips. After I realize that he/she understands what I said, I knee down to his/her feet and kiss them. And then I moved to another audience. The actions of saying ” I LOVE YOU” and kiss an audience’s feet are repeated.

This piece is also performed on streets in Vancouver, please see the video link above.
