Staged in urban surroundings a young female subject with an eating disorder observes herself in a verbal journey that decenters desire, angst, the real and the imaginary. The woman uses language as a means of constructing herself and oppositely witness how language constructs her body and person.

The installation presents the story as 7 hand drawn text pieces on paper. The contour of each word outlined and sketched as a fiction. From these 26 words have been chosen and cut from sheet metal. Placed in the gallery space, as floating mobiles they weave new meanings when confronted by the viewer.
