Wearing a full-head mask (photo), Duncan knocks on the front doors of two people he knows well.

A small amount of fish extract is poured into the ventilation system of a Los Angeles city bus shortly before the bus begins its standard route. Set in buses with windows that cannot be opened, the subliminal odor acts as a subtle aphrodisiac on the unsuspecting passengers. Performed twice, 30 days apart: A normally passive commuter kicks a stranger, a pregnant woman, off of the seat they're sharing in order to put up his feet. This causes a fight among the other passengers, half of whom side with the commuter. A group of normally quiet ultra-polite children, going home from a school specializing in disciplined behavior, tear college career ads from the inside of the bus, shred them and attack each other with the scraps (photo).
