Performance artist Monte Cazazza has made a video of his own genital piercing. There are no titles or credits. We go right to a close-up of a circumcised penis, totally flaccid, lying amid a tangle of pubic hair against a white thigh. Electronic music erupts, punctuated by the word ‘surgeon’, repeated over and over in a robotic, heavily synthesised voice. The music increases in sound level and pace, but ceases to be noticed about twenty seconds into the five-minute video.
