Shopping -- first at an art store, and then a hardware store. Abdi, as usual, doesn't know what he'll do, but is buying a bunch of stuff and planning to build his own canvas. Jaclyn can't figure out what to do, so Miles tells her to use her body. He interviews that he just wanted her to be nude. She agrees. Miles: "Win-win."
Peregrine explains that she and Mark have heaven and hell, and Mark will make a photograph of himself, then she'll make a drawing from his photograph. Mark tells us that, as a big guy, he's not really comfortable getting nude for art, but he respects Peregrine as an artist, so he's trusting her and is going to do it. On the roof. He says he's being a team player, but is definitely not comfortable. Nicole has the order side of order-chaos, so she's making a social order that's basically a shop project. She says it's referencing terms like getting engaged and married. Abdi's just carving some stuff out of clay. He's just praying he gets inspiration. Miles is convincing Jaclyn to masturbate for her piece, because that's control. He tells her he's excited to see it, but not like that. But he's a liar. Mark thinks it's ridiculous that she's falling back on her ways of using her body as an idealized form. Miles punches holes in a wall because he used to hit himself in the head as a child. Which explains a lot, actually.
Peregrine gets Mark's photo of himself (it's a close-up of just the middle section of his body from his neck down to about mid-thigh). She realizes she doesn't have time to draw, so she'll just react to this instead of making something new. Which may have been her plan all along, but she doesn't let on, so we'll never know. Peregrine cut her thumb, so she's being terse with Mark. He's still uncomfortable with seeing himself like that, but he wants to get along. He's using himself with a blue sky for his part of the project. Abdi's still not coming up with ideas, so Nicole rambles on and on about explosions and energy and caves. He says he likes it, but I don't know that she's actually said anything at all. He decides to make a painting of his weird cavelike structure: an exterior of Socrates's cave.
Simon shows up, and starts with Miles and Jaclyn. Miles explains they have male/female, but are exploring control. So he's punching holes in walls, and she's showing her painting in a corner, which will be presented in the gallery distorted in a mirror. He asks what she's doing in the work, and she says it's a private sexual act. He seems sort of speechless, which Miles thinks is good. Next up: Nicole and Abdi. Nicole explains her order side of the project, which is all about being in control. She's created a system that's controlled by an upper hand that turns the crank on the piece. Abdi shows Simon his sculpture, but Simon's not sure how that's going to translate into the painting Abdi says he's doing. Abdi wants to finally make something Simon likes. Mark and Peregrine explain their heaven and hell. Simon doesn't get her grommets on Mark's stomach. He doesn't think they depict hell, and he thinks Mark's is too literal.
