Setting: 

A room like a glass box. Cold white lighting.

A pairs of white chairs and a white desk in the middle of the room.

A white bed at the corner.

Two performers. 

This performance would last for 24 hours in the glass room. 

A - very emotional, handling different props

B - The doctor, reading a file, speak as a robot 

7: 40

A: How do you feel lately? 

B: I don’t know. Does it mean I am getting better? 

A: I don’t know. Let’s see. How do you feel? 

B: I need to sleep [lie back to bed] 

[A continue reading the file.]

 

8:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:It’s not a good time to wake up yet…

[A continue reading the file.]

 

8:30

A: How do you feel? 

B:I can get up right now but I also don’t feel like getting up. I wonder how my friends get up every day. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

9:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:sh*t I’m about to be late again. I always feel sorry for not getting things on time. [get up]

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

9:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Anxious. Sorry for not completing everything on time. Again, sorry for forgetting things all the time. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

10:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Who cares? I question. Maybe what I do only matters to those who worry about me. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

10:38 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Fuzzy. Also feel hard to concentrate on whatever’s going on. I keep adjusting the light to make the scene more similar to the one in my memory. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

11:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:The shooting ends faster than I thought. Maybe if I keep working like this I would get something done? 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

11:30

A: How do you feel? 

B: No. I’m tired and life is confusing. I don’t want to think about substances that much. But I wonder how others would see my addictive behavior. Seems true that consumption does not help with sobriety. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

12:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Nothing. It’s not the time for sleep yet. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

12:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Excited. Just ordered the pair of boots I’ve been looking for for a few weeks. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

13:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Anxiety hits me again. Why am I always not spending money when I am supposed to work? 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

13:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Fell asleep again. I guess this is my way of coping with approaching deadlines? 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

14:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Anxious but doing nothing. I guess I’ll go back to sleep. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

14:30 Maybe having that book I haven’t finished by the pillow would help? 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

15:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Like always. Disappointed. Having the book by the pillow does not mean I would choose reading instead of sleep. Why am I always doing this? 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

15:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Intrigued. I had a very nice nightmare earlier. It was about some kind of epidemic. But I could barely remember it now. Gosh. How am I supposed to finish the shooting if I keep forgetting my dreams???

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

16:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Still not coming back to me. I hate myself. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

16:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Just realized that I haven’t eaten anything since last night. I should get food. At least eating counts as something done by me. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

17:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:I need Korean fried chicken but Kimchi Garden is not open till 5:30...f**k why do I always forget about things? 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

17:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:So excited, Kimchi Garden’s open!!! 

[A continue reading the file.]
 

18:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Turns out Kimchi Garden’s closed today so I ordered from Berkeley Social Club. Hopefully their chicken’s good as well. By the time I wait I finished the book by my bed. This counts as something done. I can face my life again. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

18:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:As expected, food never let me down. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

19:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:So mad at myself. Why am I wasting my time again? I should start working. The scene in my dream is gradually fading.  

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

19:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:I am feeling better now. Since I’m not gonna sleep tonight, it would mean that I will have 7 extra hours to work, even if I don’t work at all in the end. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

20:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Telling myself RELAX. I will start working some time. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

20:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Nothing. Time flies. Like always. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

21:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Nothing. But I should shower. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

21:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Physical condition always overwhelms emotions. I think I’ve had too much chicken tonight. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

22:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Nothing. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

22:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:My stomach is getting better now. Simple things like this make me happy. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

23:00

A: How do you feel? 

B: Scared. There’s only 1 hour left of today. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

23:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:half an hour left. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

00:00

A: How do you feel? 

B: Anxious again. Maybe I should have some tea. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

00:30

A: How do you feel? 

B: I should start working, but I keep being distracted by everything other than work. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

1:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:A little bit at ease since I am working now. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

1:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:I am really worried right now because I have been writing so much about my emotions and I noticed that most of them turn out to be so terribly negative, unreasonable and annoying. This is not how people seek attention. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

2:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Working does calm me down. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

2:43 

A: How do you feel? 

B:I’m a bit distracted...my head’s getting dizzy…my awkward moments keep coming back on me. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

3:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:Wow. It’s time to record my feelings again. Maybe I should stop thinking about sleep and start drinking. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

3:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:I don’t know what I am doing with this list. I look so terribly malfunctioning here. I hate it. I wonder how those great artists in the world live? How do they feel satisfied with art? 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

4:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:eyes dry and self-loathing. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

4:26 

A: How do you feel? 

B: My heart is racing. I closed my eyes to nap but a sense of insecurity submerges me. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

4:59 

A: How do you feel? 

B: Working has got me lost of time. But I feel great. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

5:28 

A: How do you feel? 

B:I finished the shot in my dream. It's healing for me. And I am super tired and desperate somehow. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

6:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B: Maybe it is because of the tea, maybe it is because of art. I feel so energetic right now. I guess there is a reason why therapists diagnose everyone in their 20s bipolar. I should do this again. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

6:41 

A: How do you feel? 

B:I lost track of time. But I really do think I’m living now. Happily. The sun has arised, but I’m feeling a little bit sad. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

7:00 

A: How do you feel? 

B:I should really go to sleep. Daylight is making me so anxious right now. 

[A continue reading the file.] 

 

7:30 

A: How do you feel? 

B:I don’t want to see the daylight. I’m panicking right now i guess? 

A: Good. You’re making progress now.
