Description: A storage space located under the stage in a church hall (now converted into a gallery) was uniformly covered in white paper.  Two Action Researcher/Performers were positioned within this dungeon like space with black marker pens in hand.  The third Action Researcher/Performer wandered around during an exhibition opening, recording into a large white notepad overhead conversations.  Once a page had been filled with conversational text it was ripped from the notepad and dropped down the manhole into the storage space.  The Action Researcher/Performers below would then transcribe the notes onto all of the walls surrounding them.
