The two arms pass through a screen from two holes similar to eye-cuts.

The rest of the hidden body becomes visible on the screen by a video image from a camera placed behind the same screen.

The screen becomes transparent and the body’s presence appears as a condensed image in the same frame.

Time intervals and body obstacles create a structure manifested by movements in response to the surrounding space.

The relationship between perception and sense organ location finds division in a synthesis of sensation.

The function of seeing and the seer is related to the eyes, including some that are for appearance only, such as the night bird which has eyespots on the back of the head.

While the silent darkness becomes louder and experience searches for coherence in a state of awareness.

Through a flat surface, the uncovered limbs are acceding to a projected inside like touching a view left behind.

While wearing space I see you with my skin.
