This video work was filmed at Red Ant Bar in the sou- thern city of Guangzhou in 1993. Originally intended as a 5-hour video, the session was cut short by police after only 2.5 hours. All of Chen’s works between 1991 and 1993 are titled after units of time. The concept behind these works was to temporarily remove the concept of reality and the passage of time.

For Chen, the artwork represents his quest into the de- finition of art.
