In this film I wanted to see what happened when I introduced a very simple obstruction to an everyday act. I found that by putting a lady stocking over my head whilst trying to eat I could effectively create a situation both futile and funny. In the film I am actually trying my best to eat, not having to act the failure, since it is provided by my set up. I decided that the attitude that best suited the performance was one of discipline and rigour to contrast the stupidity and childishness of smearing banana all over my face. I enhanced this by wearing a uniform and by adopting a military posture. The end result is a mixture of acting and performance art.
