Stray dogs, wild cats, free cows, wandering people, leisure travellers… “Where am I mentally when I travel, and where am I going?” I wonder in tropical night. Back of a red-brown dog flashes in passing car lights. A motorcycle scares a light-colored stray dog on the roadside. The dog’s introverted gaze sharpens when the road is empty again. For a moment I watch the eyes, which at the same time look at me and invite to infinity. The dog turns, beautiful steps accelerate to running and it goes on running in the middle of a narrow village road.
“Who or what the other is, I never know.” – Luce Irigaray

Talking about...

HD video, 5 min

Are we free to talk, dance, sing and scream? I am concerned about spaces as well as freedom for our bodily response and action. My intention is to reveal thoughts about philosophical and socio-political structures. In the video, I am sitting on my bed and I figure out the relationship between an individual and the world.
