"What constitutes the present will soon become the past.
The body echoes in space.
A memory is being shaped.
This is a mapping process.
Feeling every texture is essential.
The body is a vessel of information.
Let it be exposed.
A transformation process where a trace is inscribed.
An endless circle of identification where memories unfold.
Time accumulated into one moment.
Remember this moment.
Its trace has already been created".
