The first performance

The idea of this performance came from the experience in a house created by a great artist of lights, James Turrell.
There is a dark bath in that house.
There's no light in that bath except the light fiber implanted in the bathtub.
The fiber made only my body parts in water luminous.
I couldn't see anything but the parts.
Like a firefly, it might be beautiful for an observer (if s/he was there).
But "I" was very scared.

If we do not have any means to confirm our own (physical/mental) form,
and have to put ourselves in public...

It was the moment at which I decided to be free from self protection.
