  • What image is the begging person facing?
  • What image is the giver facing when giving or not, to the begger?
  • What are the potential images in the space of action between the beggar and the giver, and how can images bemade?

Through various practices she tries out how these ”images” – collective as well as individual, visual as well as linguistic – are set in play in
the society.
