An art version of a mid game interview. The common a barrage of platitudes from both the interviewer and artist/athlete is here interrupted by some out of line digging investigative reporter. As an installation the piece consist of the backdrop a bright light and an audio loop of the reporters question. The work connects the dots, claiming similarities, between art and sports.
