The book, that started four years ago as a possible form in which my ephemeral works could live on, gradually developed into an intensive writing project about movement and the imaginative power of language. It exists of two chapters:
1 works in space and time
brief descriptions of my movement performances- and installations since 1979
Each of the 120 selected works has been translated in the most concise way possible into words and sentences.
