In a totally dark room, Gillian will attempt to construct 40 electrical lights in 4 hours using only match light as she connects bulbs, wires and plugs.
When each light is finished it is plugged into a socket that is operated by an electrical timer switch. After four hours the switch will activate and the space will be illuminated. The illumination correlates to the performers success and ability to perform the task.
Darkness denotes a failure of the task.
