Marina Abramovic

Rest Energy, 1980, by Abramović and Ulay a  former lover and collaborate. The arrow pointed directly at her heart. Microphones picked up their racing heartbeats, the creaking bow string and their vocal efforts to not let go. 
I found this  to be a moving piece because they are holding life in their hands. If she is to fall back she could mistakenly shoot an arrow into her heart. I feel that this signifies that love is a dangerous thing you are not only putting your heart in someone else's hand, but also have to have knowledge to know when to remove yourself.
