Burden's notes after the work: "The piece began when I took off my clothes, jeans and a t-shirt, and lay on the floor on my back. A friend hammered a star shaped stud into my sternum. Then I sat in a chair and had all my hair cut off. Finally I dress in some F.B.I. clothes I bought for the piece." -- Chris Burden, in "Chris Burden : 71 - 73."
