Body language
All these things matter
You are in full control of your actions
Stand straight and await my instructions

This praxis session is based on the performance Limit-Cruisers (#1 Sphere), but it is a low-tech and experimental version where the work is used as a test site to further expand on notions such as individuality, autonomy, self-exploitation, adaption, and escapism.
The work consists of five synchronized soundtracks entitled "Sound check", ”New Individualism”, ”Decoy”, ”The Heroes of Absolute Zero”, and “Countdown”.

relation to the praxis session at PSi19, a paper was pesented entitled: ”What You See is not What You Get – Performance as a Mode of Thinking”. It was part of the panel: "A Moment in the Life of a Psychic Subject", June 28, 2013.
