"The work includes 73 volunteers - one for each day of the exhibition. Each volunteer sits alone in an especially designed "living room" for two hours. The volunteers are requested to bring their own DVD and then sit down and watch it. The visitors of the space are invited to watch the volunteers watching their movies. Light refreshments are served."
