    Video title:
    Levitate IV – Tomato Juice
    2005, 1:54

    The subject’s body levitates aimlessly in the space, shaking and kicking like a hanged man.
    Marching with time while drinking tomato juice.
    Yet the condition of the tomato juice is not experimental. Its only connection with the
    subject is momentary, passing by the broken time and space. It’s in total disorder.
    People, environment and space together form the relation between the artist and the reality.
    The action taken place gives a new meaning, new perception and new connection and new
    possibility to that relation. The subject, in reality, is between reality and unreality.
    Existent or inexistent? Is the “reality” reality?
    After exercise, the body opens up its senses.
