White dress

 I created a map and an instruction for myself. I put on a white dress and took a one-hour walk through downtown Porto. I threw out the garbage and didn’t put on any shoes. I’ve been watching the people watching me. They didn’t look in my eye, but they were turning to me when I was passing by. I felt naked and devoid. The experience of discomfort. The experience of nudity.

Slowly I got used to it and didn’t feel tense. I’ve been wondering what people think, what stories are forming in their heads. I appeared for a moment in the rush of strangers and flew away like a ghost and left them without a word.
