A solo installation performance art piece using an interplay of movement, sound art, and high-concept design. Palimpsest is a series of studies on the Being, and the Being itself is a palimpsest. The Being comes from the Inbetween, an infinite expanse connecting the Herenow to the Thenenthere. It moves through its world unconcerned and unencumbered by pressures of someone or something else's time. The Being's every action emerges out of a deep, practiced relationship with this body and its extensions. It indulges in curious intimacies, methodical sensuality and deliberate play. It is an agent of pleasure liberation. The Being isn't sure if you are watching, but it hopes you are. It wants to wrap you up in its perversion and whisper "If I am me, it is ok to be you. Now, what do you desire?"
