    A house built with part of oneself, her hair. Inside her house, it demonstrates her inner-self. The body and the mind are the infusion.  Each movement expands through space, creating a space that englobes the universe. Behind the imagination, material aspects are overcome. The tip of her hair is in complete freedom, it reaches the far-west, her thoughts have no limits.
