This DVD is produced with "myself" as the sole object as well as the material of the video except two performances with Akiko Iimura. The video is not just a document of the performance but a work of video-art made specifically for video utilizing the video system including camera and monitor as a part of the performance. The video also questions the identity of oneself in video having tense relationship between words and images, and asks who is "I" and what "I" means.

"Iimura compares the dialectics of images and language, live video image and the viewer, as well as the "subject" and the "object" to the complex Yin/Yang principle" - Slavko Kacunko

"In a distinctly post-modern turn Iimura places his theoretical procedures through the self of the artist and the viewer in a dialectic of linguistic discovery" - John G. Hanhardt
