I place several objects upon the stage dubbed “the Unconscious.” Looking at the subjects reappearing and disappearing according to the lighting upon the black stage, I at times erase and at times regenerate the fragments of memories in my head. Following desire, I ascend “Helicrysum – Eternal Steps,” chase after, or at times let go of, things that are as elusive as the evaporating fog, and play as I had in childhood, magnifying the toys on the other side of the mirror, and then darting them from view.
