The Noon (working title)

The body and its representation in different situation, the meaning that the body can take, using the body as a tools as objects as I. the distance between the I and me, the structural existence of the body anatomically, the body as a transparent mass that could be printed with defferent experiences crossing and happening (text, sound, and execution of defferent tasks physical and abstract). Tasks that will be based on my own experience and memory and my relationship to a certain sound and text. I’m the result of my environnement, environnement is the result of me.
