Due to the difficulty of knowing interiors from exteriors, and the implications of this in an instrumentalized culture, I try to find alternative ways. I follow trace feelings in my body, searching for very old, non-mental information produced by my physicality. I magnify the involuntary subliminal that I detect into formed structures, gestural notations, and bodily presentations.
