Kosugi performed EARDRUM EVENT (He changes sound that comes from outside by opening and closing a window.) using his own body (ears) at CATCH WAVE show in 1975, which was originally performed at the Fluxus event in 1962, and made the prints out of the documentary photography recorded during the event. It was 1998 when he found the prints in the storage, which had been forgotten as he moved to NY for a while. He picks up some of them in a good condition, and reorganizes them into a collection of 9 prints in a case.
