Sun baking on the America flag using motor oil as suntan oil.

BAKING IN OUR OWN EXCESS (20 minutes)

act 2

The oily flag is taken away with respect, to reveal 7 x 4 ft of white Arches (watercolor) paper beneath.

I lay on the white paper and am littered with trash / white fabric.

The paper, fabric and I are covered with water. When wetted down the strips of fabric become whip like. I stain them with ink and fling them out beside me to create stripes.

I shoot red, white and blue ink from guns (water pistols) slung around my waist.
