The audience arrives and sits on the grass facing two actors some distance away, a suitable romantic spot for the final installation of The 24 Hour Experience. Each member of the audience receives a mobile headset, through which they hear a series of pre-recorded love scenes from undisclosed movies. As the recordings play, the audience watches two actors standing, ignoring the other, holding hands, watching the view, or feed the ducks with pieces of bread. The piece looks at the way audiences are able to project love narratives onto almost any performance they witness.
