Statement

Identity- I see a threat, that through the ? decay of memory?, it may be blurred in reality, that surrounds me.

Body is a physical and mental reality, that copes, during action, with previous experiences

Performance, enables me to play with a time. Gives me a feeling of ability to affect the course of past actions,

modify them, disconnect them from ?the source?, build new configurations and transfer them to the space of reality.
