I will to write a letter to the camera about how it is like being watched by it. There will be just my hands, paper and stuff. I will create certain dynamics between hiding the paper from the camera and showing it. Sometimes I will read it aloud, sometimes I will be silent but I will not write. Eventually, there will be an asemic writing archive consisting of sound, shapes of ink and independent of the language of the camera. How much of the thoughts can the camera record? What kind of relationship is that the between my muscles and my voice? This is a psychosomatic and cinematographic research philosophy project.
