15: Endgame Ticker (My Heart Beats for the European Champion)
The 7-Year Itch

Mixed media on paper
12 x 17.25 inches

Performance in Werderplatz, Intershop2/suedstattsued, Karlsruhe, 04/07/04, during the final of the European Football Championships.

Behind a screened-off shop window, I perform a public 'broadcast' parallel to the game, which thousands watch live on TV monitors set up by local businesses all around the market square. On an overhead projector, I tick off and convey to football fans outside every single heartbeat I feel between the start and the final whistle.
