As one buys or comes to win the publication at hand one has a right to ask Ištvan Išt Huzjan to come to his or hers preferred location and perform his piece entitled OD TU DO TU (From Here To There). Huzjan's performance is a simple gesture where the artist enters the chosen location and barefooted measures the distance between two random architectural elements chosen together by the artist and the person in possession of the book. To mark the starting point of the measuring the artist writes down OD TU (from here) directly on the first architectural element and to mark the end point the artist writes down the measured distance on the second architectural element DO TU MERI x STOPAL (to here measures x number of feet). During the performance the artist talks about his work and the context of the publication. This publication is signed and numbered on 50 copies.
