The floor at one end was covered in sandy powder. Two slide and one film projector cast grainy black and white images of beaches and rocks on the end wall. Recorded voices solemnly intoned meaningful existential questions like Hamlet. The sound tracks began to overlap until it was impossible to focus on the words. Cha appeared in front of the photographed images. She sat meditatively. She dragged ropes tied to rocks with labels like "abandoned" stencilled on them. The same rocks were seen on film. By this time, I felt hypnotized". (Robert Atkins, Bay Guardian, unpublished review, 1978).
