There were days, rainy gray days, when the streets of Brooklyn were worthy of a photograph, every window the lens of a Leica, the view grainy and immoble. We gathered our colored pencils and sheets of paper and drew like wild, feral children into the night, until, exhausted, we fell into bed. We lay in each other’s arms, still awkward but happy, exchanging breathless kisses into sleep.

None knew of their love except their own two hearts…

Rhythm 0 and Rest Energy are two pieces, which for me was the most difficult in my entire life of performance artist, because in both pieces I was not in charge.
In Rest Energy we actually hold one arrow on the weight of our body and arrow is pointing my heart. We have two small, little microphones on our hearts where we can hear the sounds of the heart beating. As our performance is progressing heart beats become more and more intense and it’s just four minutes and ten seconds, for me it was, I tell you it was forever. So, it was really a performance about complete and total trust.
THE END 🥀
