The performer’s actions in a narrow space symbolizing a spaceship are being screened in real time in another space through a device connected to a camera attached to a helmet he is wearing. In the video, the actions of the performers are temporally parallel or arranged in mutual relation. The performer’s movement is similar to repairing a spacecraft or conducting experiments in outer space. Through new encounters and actions in an unfamiliar space, he expresses the confrontation between strangers and places, and embarks on a journey to find the link of life.
