At the beginning of the performance, the GB Group will gently invite pedestrians to write down their names on a white canvas. Moving the artwork upside down and indicating the audience were to write, two letters appear, composed of all the names written in lines: ’E.’ ’U.’
By instructing the owner of ’E.U.’ to retrace all the names which compose the art-work, each time using a bigger pen-tip, the owner will, in the end, make all those names unrecognizable and they. will appear as unreadabl ink stains
Over time the art-work ’E.U.’ will become only a canvas with one letter written on it, precisely ’E.U.’
Once the owner of "E.U." will have completed his task to retrace all the participants’ names, these very names will snake in the proprietor’s mind who will be, even subconsciously, influenced by those names or information which will be made unreadable.
The ambitious aim of "E.U." is to transform the primary function of writing, turning writing from a way of “remembering” information into a way of “absorbing” information, while erasing that very information at the same time.
The main aim is to transform writing from a “reminding tool” into a “tool for absorption” of information.
