Marina Abramovic and Ulay

video






Its too bad I didn't get the whole video. 
Marina A and Ulay begin slowly slapping each other. 
Their slaps get faster and harder until they can take no more. 
We watched it next to lots of people including some small children who were completely amazed.
You can see the whole video at the Hirshhorn Museum which is amazing.

This was my first test:
