At a place where you are unhappily employed, collect a tiny, repetitive, and dispensable object at the end of every shift with the intention of doing minor, insignificant, yet revengeful financial harm.
Bring the objects home and store them in your shower. Listen to the sound the water makes against them.
Repeat until you find a new job.

Pieces that need not be performed (though no one is stopping you) #4 (2014)
'Pieces that need not be performed (but no one is stopping you)' is an iteration of Lawrence Weiner's 'Declaration of Intent' (1968):
1. The artist may construct the piece.
2. The piece may be fabricated.
3. The piece need not be built.
Each being equal and consistent with the intent of the artist the decision as to condition rests with the receiver upon the occasion of receivership.
Each work in the series consists of a text proposal, which is sometimes realized or illustrated in a particular form, or sometimes left as is for future interpretations.
