The artist lifts a fry pan in each hand whilst voicing a list of instructions to self. As they continue, the artist puffs with exertion. A single light positioned on the floor casts a shadow of the artists exercising legs in the corner of the room.

"(fry pan weightlifting, fry pan improvement). One of "six tests measuring my promises for idiocy in stilling, labour, falling, being fallen, and audience/self repair."
