Everywhere on the streets of Bogota, there are vendors of time, minuteros. Their handmade billboards advertise minutes. After a while the bystander realizes that they are selling prepaid phone credit below the high market prices.

The performance mimicked the booth of a “minutos” seller. Potential customers were – unexpectedly – offered the time of the vendor himself. The resulting conversations were recorded in minutes and the buyer was then handed a certificate that listed the lifetime of the artist as received by the customer in minutes.
