“On this occasion OJOBOCA offers its introductory film massage. With our purpose-made device our trained film masseuses will help you release your other self. Working directly on the invisible flesh, in four distinct movements, the sickness of light will be revealed. A word of caution: This is a device that does not release pressure. This is a device that does not soothe, that does not relieve pain. This is a device that does not apply gentle massage. This is a device that does not ameliorate noise. This is a device that does not remember. This is a device that does not learn. This is a device that is always beginning, that does not know how to end. This device is like a sentient ocean whose behavior is beyond understanding.”
