I am interested in floating moments in the process of jumping, like going up and shortly going down under the force of gravity. As the work continued and I jumped continuously, thousands of times, my fight extended beyond gravity to a fight against physical tiredness and pain; I yearned for relief from the impact of landing on a concrete floor. I am intrigued by the notion that the floating moments are similar with the temporality of human existence. In “Floating Experiments,” capturing floating moment fossilizes temporality into infinity. The continuous actions of the floating moments transform dreams into reality. Through performance I experienced a dramatic discrepancy between a conceptual dream of flying – of a longing for freedom – and the practical reality of existence with gravity, with falling and landing, with pain.
