The Reader

I read. I leave my body behind and vanish in order to get out of the space of solitude for a second, to reach out. To whom? To what? “I am a gaze, without opinions, judgements, feelings.” (Olga Tokarczuk “House of Day, House of Night”). I move between three spaces: mental space, virtual space, and physical space. I am in all of them at the same time and not really in any of them.

In this online-work the performer is invisible, but their traces are visible. These traces consist of observations and words stemming from a specific physical space, are transmitted to the digital space, to you who are, where?
