Description: Late one evening the Action Researcher/Performer used a large piece of grey mesh construction fabric (found earlier that week abandoned on the street) to wrap around a seated section of Pont Neuf.  Threaded through the mesh were thirty hand-made red crepe paper flowers.  Each petal had a letter written in black pen which when joined together to create a flower, revealed words about the Action Researcher/Performers emotive response to Paris.  The Action Researcher/Performer wore a red outfit and stood in the middle of the mesh canopy facing the street.  In her hands was a small old music box that when she turned the handle continuously, repeated over and over again a famous song synonymous with Paris.
