During this performance piece, the audience was invited to come to a ceremonial alter to help complete the piece. Performance assistant Chloe Bass silently led people to remove Bonafede's body hair with wax hair removal strips, creating the framed series. The hair was removed as part of Bonafede's performance art series entitled Polymorph, wherein he completed endurance races that requires the removal of leg hair for optimal performance. This performance was completed when the audience removed much of his hair. Chloe Bass removed the rest. What is usually a private ritual became an intimate public one in the candlelit setting. The title comes from the homage Bonafede was making to Yoko Ono's "Cut Piece" wherein she invited the audience to cut her clothes off.
