Lend Me a Copy of Your Most Hated Song on CD and I'll Love It by the End of the Night, performed at the Surplus Gallery, Carbondale, IL, 2003, designed 2003

Chris posted advertisements that asked people to bring their most hated songs in the world to the opening reception of a show. After gathering the CDs, he attempted to focus his willpower so as to force himself to love the songs by the end of the night. Chris was presented with songs that included No Wave punk, Thai folk music, orchestral High Modernism, and Taylor Dane, but was able to bring himself to love them all by the time they turned the lights off and everyone went home.
