This performance is an expression regarding the mental and physical pain/pressure caused by one's decision making resulting to solitude. Situations in which one makes choices but the consequences are not as satisfactory as anticipated, and in most of cases there are painful (processes) results far from the utopian ideal. This performance was an action based on own experience of moving to Finland from Iran. Would the action ease the pain , or ease difficulty of the choice and its consequences or even slightly express it? Marks of plastic string remained on my arms and fingers for over two days.
