Operating Manual for Floating in Space is a project by Mylan Hoezen, researching the ecstasy of our existence through manually operating a sequence of bodily movements.
This website is an archive of performative operations created between 2017 and 2020.
The works used to create this archive are listed here. For inquiries please email me.
