How a society builds the body, how a sense of community is formed in the body, how the community balances its rhythm and how this rhythm reflects on the body.
I couldn't stand where I stood, now I forgot to walk.
We used to give things we made ourselves.
The trees are coming into my body. They come into my breath.
If you could go back in time, what would you say to yourself?
Respect your body, live fearlessly, live without an apartment.

Over time, this community embodied the transformation of the self, body, and voice - how it can take space even at the stage of life that is shaped by the apprehension towards death and limited by its futurelessness. She explores novel patterns such as “control without control” and “compressed and oppressed potentials” in the aging body.
