"A Day in the Life of Mila Harper Blum" is a performative event developed as part of artistic research that explores the tension between fiction and reality. By observing and imitating other bodies from reality and situating the imitation act within a pseudo-reality setup, the research seeks to immerse the performer's body into another body. Subsequently, the threshold that seems to separate the self from the other is crossed, and the borders between what is real and not begin to blur. In doing so, the research questions how representation can move beyond a mere description of the world toward a process of transformative becoming, asking not only what the representational act means but what it can do.

For building the character of Mila, the research focused on the embodiment of the aging body and involved a mutual engagement with the elderly in nursing homes across the Netherlands.
