The two arms are passing through a screen from two hole similar to eye-cut.

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 are creating a structure manifested by movements in response to the surrounding space.

The relationship between perception ands 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 for appearance only, as the night bird which has eye-spots on the back of the head.

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

Trough 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.
