In this piece I hang an effigy of myself made of cloth stuffed with newspaper on the wall. With black spray-paint, I add the face, nipples and pubic hair. Then I light a blowtorch and ignite the feet, placing my wig on the head of the effigy after it has been ignited. The rest of the piece consists of the effigy burning.
