Barboza performs the expression People tied together (also known as
Expressions at a laundry). The artist describes this event as follows "I was in the
space of the Action Space group with colored ribbons and I gave them to people
according to the color of their preference. Then I tied them with these ribbons
and we went down a ladder so tied , to walk to the laundry that was in the
corner. There I untied people, and in two washing machines we put the ribbons
to wash. Meanwhile we played music, we talked about art, what we thought
about what we were doing. Then we put the ribbons in the drier, because the
idea was that they were as they were before to make ties again and continue
walking through the Camden area. That is a very particular area because it is a
working area; there we bought things in stores, we went to a gas pump, and the
event ended at a bus station "
