It was originally commissioned by the Latvian Contemporary Arts Centre for its "Survival Kit" festival.

For years I have been listening to the "Free Microphone" a program by the Latvian  National Radio in which every single person may call and tell whatever is on his / her mind. I've noticed that majority of callers are elderly people and issues that concern them are mostly absurd to me.

With this work I contemplate on the question that at some point we are young, smart and beautiful but we never notice the moment in which sexy us turn into haggard, nervous and agitated retirees.
