The sea releases the object

This is a performance for the camera, but an inner performance as well. I am dropping my broken marbles into the sea, I said goodbye to the object that once was precious to me. This performance has its basis on the game “Fort-da” interpreted by Freud. He analysed the behaviour of his grandson, an eighteen-month-old baby, as a way of obtaining satisfaction by causing things to be “gone.”
