Set in two booths reminiscent of Wim Wenders’ Paris, Texas, Fornieles was seen by two sets of audience members. In front of her was a one-way mirror facing out and onto the gallery space, affording the audience a clear view as she sat at a small table with only a telephone for communication. To her side, a decapitated deer carcass hung from the ceiling. Unable to see out, Fornieles blindly faced the voyeuristic gaze of both the audience and the anonymous participant looking in at her from the booth next door. Once seated, this individual was invited to pick up the phone and call Fornieles, who explained that she was conducting a survey of what gives people pleasure and that if they took part, she would obligingly answer any question they chose to ask.
