Closing Cynthia's Show
For the closing of Cynthia Daignault's exhibition There Is Nothing I Could Say I Haven't Thought Before, Cynthia, Mark and David devise a closing party, where remarks will be delivered. Cynthia and Mark apologize, as David is running late, and begin to discuss him in absentia. When they mention his "image-outfit" he emerges from gallery storage carrying slipcases printed with his likeness and proceeds to "pack" Cynthia's show. When his work is completed (all of Cynthia's paintings now covered by the slipcases), he disrobes from the image-outfit and leaves the building. The show is officially closed. At no point do Cynthia or Mark acknowledge what is transpiring around the audience. Cynthia looks around and declares, "hmmm. This isn't the show I remembered."
