 Restaging of a comic con autograph where I sell autographs and photos relating to a past role as the Silver Power Ranger on the series  Power Rangers RPM .  This is the first station in the looping performance, where I eat beans and rice to the soundtrack of Frank Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim performing  How Insensitive , and interact with ‘fans’.

 I also had performers wearing masks of myself inhabit the space throughout the evening, and also encouraged them to wander through the rest of the space and observe the other performances at the festival.    Picture here is Chia Huang beside a set of fake artist monographs I had made for myself in echo of the large Zhou Brothers book displays upstairs in and outside the bar area.
