More materials taken from nature were boiled in the pot.
The music created using sound-fragments from the Kartoffel Menschen Trio song "Sixteen Buckets of Shit", the song recorded in the gallery (dubbed "Play Me Your Favorite Records"), and the environmental sounds recorded in Gothenburg and Molndal were all played through the gallery's speakers.
The shopping cart was removed from the gallery space and placed on the street outside. The branches within the gallery space were moved around, so that a large portion of them were suspeneded from the ceiling, while the rest were placed in a pile on the floor. The cut-out figures of a band playing instruments were placed among the branches on the floor. The video-projector was also placed on the branches, and the video of the various swedish forest and garden environments was projected onto the ceiling.
The canvas with some ball-point pen drawings on it was placed leaning against the western wall.
Some drawings were made using the liquid resulting from the boiling of the materials taken from nature. These drawings were cut out, portions of one being placed in the northwestern corner of the gallery, as well as above the canvas leaning against the western wall. Another, larger, cut-out drawing was placed on the floor.
Bonnie Gooden, curator of The Ministry of Casual Living gallery, arranged the branches outside the gallery along the front of the gallery's storefront window.
The liquid left at the bottom of the pot after boiling the leaves was applied to the same canvas as the previous liquid.
