Revisit - Envolver Rope II which took place at MEME located in Cambridge, Ma, May 2011. I am sitting on the white table in the middle of the space. I have the rope that I made during my 23.5 hours at MEME in May 2011 sitting on my lap. On the floor are three different size plastic bags. On the table behind me are six pairs of large red scissors, and five pairs of small red scissors and a pile of matches. As audience members enter the space I invite them to cut a piece of the rope off and place it in the bag. They are told they can keep it, place it back on the pedestal where the rope was being displayed, or take a thing of matches and burn it. This continues for an hour. At the end of the hour the remaining rope is placed back on the pedestal along with the scissors and the remaining matches.
