They will find you somewhere, someday. I will become a book that day. You / I / It will become a performance someway. The book will become the twin-self of the performance, so to say. It will become bookperformance, let’s smile and resay. We will safely sound in the same body eventually, with no delay. I will become something like an actional situation, as you will performatively explain its theory as well someday.” p. 398

Here are some ReaderAuthor Notes that reached through facebook:  

"E'stato molto toccante! Loved watching the genuine poet who was emerging on the black and white pages. Disegnare con le parole scritte et parole parlate. Tale bella performance. Cigdem! It was a pleasure to meet you and your art!" Emmanuele, 25.05.2015 

"Cigdem! I must say that the whole performance was Cigdem herself. When I noticed this I realized how much you were emphasising your tendency about 'catching the truth' during one week of studies. Now I am also getting closer to your idea about transparency. Hope to work on it together!.." Katrin, 30.05.2015

"Just GREAT!" Davido, 24.05.2015

It is very touching to see this way of handling "the book". Hope to join one performance of you.
