2. De-Construction: Tearing small parts from an old book, gluing them to the face until the hole head is covered by book pieces
3. Re-Construction: Local people is gathered and put on chairs in the space. There they read their favourite book out loud, from beginning til the end, so that who ever can come and listen as long as they like
