Statement of Intention: I will make peace with the area by leaving an offering in one of it’s shrines. I will do this by lighting a candle in a phone box. I will have cleaned the phone box of any rubbish and clutter that would be distracting from the action of making peace.
Created: 18:30-18:35 10/2/12

Intervention in a Supermarket
Statement of Intention: I will blow and draw on six eggs. I will draw from a song I have in my head. I will place these 6 eggs, as a set in a box, on the egg shelf, in a supermarket local to Camberwell.
