The laptop computer was hooked up to the speakers by the western wall and the Elsewhere Right Now concert, the accapella concert by The New Noise Trio, the piece recorded in the gallery using the instruments built there, the covers of songs by Marit Bergman, Jens Lekman and Fred Astereo and the recordings of the music performed (Light 1 & Light 2) in the gallery by Jens Lekman, Terese Nordström and Hampus Pettersson were played through them. On the screen could be seen a movie of streaming water.

The drawing of four angels playing instruments over a park was moved from the western wall and instead placed by the floor of the outer eastern wall underneath the drawing of a figure in a park, standing by a statue in front of a building along with the word-balloons reading "There's another Lincoln statue by the same sculptor in Prospect Park" and "Where Lincoln once stood now Gandhi stands".
The cut-out drawing of a figure in a landscape of tangled lines as well as a word-balloon reading "Jag vet att det vänder" was also moved from the western wall to the outer eastern wall, where it was placed underneath the cut-out photograph of a bridge and the photograph of a crossroads.
More drawings were cut out of the photocopied pages from sketchbooks and placed on the floor of the gallery, both by the outer as well as the inner eastern walls.

The coffeegrinds in the coffeecups were poured out onto the floor by the western wall, right by the photograph of a lego-building. The coffeecups were filled with water and placed by the inner eastern wall next to the painting of the band Sonic Youth performing in a forest.

Photographs of the individuals who had contributed on collaborative pieces in the gallery (Liz Cummins, Stefan Johansson, Jens Lekman, Dan Lundberg, Terese Nordström, Alyssa St Vincent and Kamakani Weinberg) were cut out and placed on the western wall.
The photograph of an "infinity" sign and a hand with it's middle finger extended was moved from the post and placed on the western wall to the left of the collaborative drawings done with Stefan Johansson.
A painting of a forest with some pine-trees and a house was made. Onto it was affixed a CD, the cut-out photograph of an "anarchy" sign and the cut-out photograph of a pizza (with it's toppings forming a "peace" sign).
The photographs of a light-studded crown and a flyer with an "anarchy" sign and a text reading "Finally punk" were moved from the western wall and placed on the edge of the wall leading to the office. The photograph of the "Finally punk" flyer was placed underneath the drawing of a figure with a sweatshirt reading "complete". The photograph of the crown was placed above the drawing of a vaguely sketched face and some abstract forms.
A photograph of a framed picture of a surfer riding a wave was placed on the western wall, to the left of the cut-out drawing of a figure playing instruments inside an apartment.
