In the project, two or more people fit in a plastic water tank. With questions and answers travelling back and forth, the information is contained in words, sounds, expressions, body movements, and hand gestures. flowing through the space on a fixed timeline.
The information generated by the interview is superimposed and fractured, like a chemical reaction of information.
The performance took place in a tank that was placed on a crate and was constantly moving. Regardless of status and position, the participants

For performers in the water tank, the environment is constantly changing as the crate is randomly moving around. The flow of information exchanged between the two is forced into the field
The contradictions between the scene and the topic, the control and the controlled, and the countless
The chemical fission of information is accelerated, leading to unknown directions.
