    "The object itself carries within a crisis of identity: What is it exactly? A stage for an intimate one-on-one performance? An unusual video screening room? A personal multi-media altar? A "vanity" used for preparing for a performance? It is all these things and it is also an original book devised by Felicia; a book in search of a new format and a new audience. Each element (the book itself, the vanity/altar box, the performance video, the critical essays, the aural experience) stands by itself, but together they form an indescribable whole. And it is precisely this whole that we are after--Guillermo Gómez-Peña"--Publisher's website.

Opening the case lights the altar and triggers Watkins' sound art, pressing buttons within brings up specific compositions"--Colophon
