"I don´t know how I am. Sometimes I think I do, but I would always tend to doubt. I like Shastis quote: "Introducing yourself is a gesture of hospitality”. Never thought about an introduction in that way. So the (my) I is in a house-like formation, decorated by my skin, my physical corporality which is my outer (that I myself can only catch a glimpse off from time to time). The hospitality would be inviting others to my house. Which I know even less about – as it confuses me – my inner .This is a constant state of indeterminacy.
For me the introduction of the self becomes a representation of the self, a self-categorizing, a construction lingering between norms, reality, exposure & self-acknowledgment. In a way I’m generating self-interest for myself and for the other towards myself.
For everytime a hear my voice speak-up I get interested in myself, like wow is this you speaking?
To quote Shatis further: “You are presenting yourself in your own words…”. How OWN are these words or these pictures of myself. What can I call my own? And how much of this OWN is just a number of affiliated presets or codes I´ve learned to use and reuse?
Where can I locate myself in between all of this?"
