Operating Manual for Floating in Space2019 / 2020

Operating Manual for Floating in Space is a project researching the ecstasy of our existence through manually operating a sequence of bodily movements.

The great vastness of space.
The nullity of the rock we inhabit.
The energy that infinitely flows.

An unbelievable force yet rare and fragile. We spin, we zip, we orbit - but we wish to float. The tectonics of our energy forms the elementary nature of our existence. We lie on the surface, navigating our position in the universal scheme, trying to grasp our fleeting presence in and around this rock. What does it feel like? How do we get there? How did it get here? Have we arrived?
