What is it then that this tactile experience unstrung?

The materiality of thin string and the construction I made with it gave me some clues about life

When I started this performance, I wasn't planning to make a networking map. My starting point was: I am going to connect with a wall. I am going to use threads and sticky dots to connect myself with this wall, using as many lines as needed to feel that we are attached. It will be like growing roots, like planting myself to the wall. 

Then, while doing it, the wall started to disappear. The "real" thing was happening in the threads. 

They started to represent relationships. In a broader sense.
