“A performance of about 10 minutes, repeated at different times during the day, belonging to meals: breakfast, coffee break, lunch, dinner, supper.

As I swallowed a contact mike (covered in silicon glue), the audience heard my stomach devour the different meals during the day.”

Description:

I swallow a contact mike (covered in silicon glue), and the audience hears my stomach devour different things (carbonized drink, popper candy etc), my heartbeat and my breathing (agitated by physical work) as they sound from inside the stomach.
