    ‘I gave you my gift at first, now give me your gift.’ This is a story about uncomfortable feelings about relationships. By forcing participants to spit out their gum into the artist’s hands and forcing them to accept the artist’s hypocritical thanks, the artist attempts to tell the story of how uncomfortable relationships can make us hypocritical but deeply vulnerable in the age of the epidemic.
