Making use of 250 pounds of sand-colored red is defined a path approximately 10 linear meters, where one end DEMARCATES through sand the start point of the action and to the place where the artist will accommodate. About him is deposited all the remaining sand and, and, He will remain immobile for a period of 3 hours. In the next 60 minutes all the material is moved only with use of the body to the point of origin, with only traces-action memory (at the request of the Organization of the SP-Art performance happens during 2 hours).
