My performances are usually made for a specific place and the audience in that place. Shared time is consequently an important element in them. Sometimes my ideas cannot be acted out this way, however, in which case I perform for 'a single eye', the camera, which is generally stationary, simply recording the event. I do not manipulate the video with camera angles or with editing, I reduce the event to one single take. The purpose is to minimise the possibility of technological intervention in order to convey the act of the performance itself. The eye of a video is restricted compared to the human eye, the picture is clearly framed. In my video performances I have taken into account this (framing) function and its special expressive potential, typical of all single-eyed recording devices.

Početak, 2005. (kadrovi iz videorada)

Moji performansi su obično predviđeni za određeni prostor i publiku u tom prostoru. Zajedničko vreme je, prema tome, važan elemenat u njima. Ponekad, međutim, moje ideje ne mogu da se realizuju na taj način, i u tom slučaju ja pravim performas za ’jedno oko’ – kameru - koja je obično negde fiksirana i jednostavno snima događaj. Ja ne utičem na video menjanjem uglova snimanja, ili montažom. Svodim događaj na jedan kadar. Cilj je da se mogućnost tehnološke intervencije svede na minimum, kako bi se preneo sam čin performansa. Oko videa je ograničeno u odnosu na ljudsko oko, slika je jasno kadrirana. U svojim videoperformansima vodim računa o toj funkciji (kadriranju) i njenom posebnom izražajnom potencijalu tipičnom za sve jednooke uređaje za snimanje.
