This is the only photo of you I have

I have too many images of you in my head. Too much imagination. All the time you speak to me in my own voice. Sometimes I cannot find enough time to think. Sometimes you are somebody else, and sometimes you are yourself-from my imagination; and sometimes so am I.

This performance deals with images. The body is understood as a “living medium” that produces, perceives, or remembers images. Subjectivity has arisen with the image of self reflection as described in the Lacan’s mirror stage. A single thought is an image, so is a single memory too. However images are never what they are claimed to be. They bring a certain amount of fiction with themselves which one should be aware of, while taking them as a basis of understanding of the world and itself.
