A performance video in collaboration with artist Malvina Tan. Inspired by the theory of Plato’s Cave, it is an exploration piece on the faculties of control of our instincts. What do we do before a thought or
intention translates into action. The mind is the deciding factor for what we we perceive. Is our perception of our inner world more visceral than reality? Our reality might just be a hallucination of our subconscious.
We decided to explore the most basic human chores and actions and their significance.The performance artist will try to imitate the video projection of these actions without looking at it. This allows the audience to question how a person can decide on his or her own reality.
