I stand in a gallery space, wrap my head with a red fabric, and hold an umbrella. I start to draw circles on my belly button, and then expand it to the whole belly. While I am consistently drawing circles on my belly, I drip saliva. The saliva gradually run down from my chest and my belly, mixed with the red ink, and run down to my feet.
