If you place a human body into a string bag and lift it up to a height of 10 meters, the body loses its normal function, and the string bag also assumes a new physicality. Disability and physical restriction is one of my favourite subjects. Being locked in that string bag my body stops being just motionless and disabled, it becomes a shining star (the sun or the moon, doesn't matter), a UFO, an object one can observe simply by lifting one's chin up (which is physically uncomfortable). For 7 hours the body is hanging above the audience, disturbing them with its unknown function / mission and at times it seems to shine (hell knows why).
