Do it.

Discovered on the E-Flux site this morning - Manual - a guide to recreating art from a whole bunch of international performance, conceptual, and situational artists. It's good. Do it now (from artist Franz West):

  1. Take a broomstick and tightly bandage both the handle and the bristles with cotton gauze so that the bristles stand on end.
  2. Take 35 decagrams of plaster and mix with the appropriate amount of water.
  3. Distribute the plaster over the entire bandaged surface.
  4. Take another strip of gauze and bandage the plastered work again.
  5. Apply another layer of plaster to totally cover the work.
  6. Repeat this procedure once again and let the "Passstueck" dry completely.
  7. The result of this procedure is that the object can be used as a "Passstueck," either alone, in front of a mirror, or in front of guests. Deal with it however you feel suitable. Encourage your guests to act out their intuitive thoughts for possible uses of the object.
