The performer was wearing kaleidoscope glasses during the performance, tracing down the audience who walked into the room by eye and head movement. Improvisation reactions (slow movement) were made by the performer based on audience action. One-on-one interactive actions included: long time staring at each other, holding hands (and crying – for only once), pouring and drinking water together (and wine – for only once). But a curious and fast movement mode will be activated by machine in the room, like a camera, then the performer will staring and following the machine until the machine is not in the room anymore. The whole performance also includes sleep mode, play mode, and leave(walkout) mode.
