A woman signs the verb “fast” in American Sign Language by putting her thumb and index finger together and “zipping” her mouth, which resembles the action of closing one’s mouth to be silent. The speed of the action is slowed down, so the person signs the word "fast" very slowly.

Created to accompany Lee's own live reading of a text on fasting at Eat Art event at Monkey Town in Brooklyn. The event was organized by Amoreen Armetta and it featured various texts on food/eating with video works.
