What Do You Love Doing? is a collaboration between Jessica Tanto and sound artist Naraset. The work was created during the period that the artist had to choose her bachelors degree after graduating highschool. She realized that a lot of students struggled to choose a degree after graduating highschool due to the immense contradictory demands from different authority figures throughout their life.

In this collaborative performance, Jessica responded Naraset's noise performance with movement. Each audience member was given a wearable costume piece (such as a pirate hat, or labcoat) and stood around the room. Jessica started moving while there was a red string attached on her right thumb and toe. She explored the room and tried on the costume piece the audience members wore. Her movements while exploring caused her to progressively become more entangled in her own red strings until she was not able to move anymore.
