DIVA este femeia f\r\ vârst\, femeia comun\. Ea consi-der\ ritualul cosmetiz\rii propriei imagini o practic\ fireasc\ pe care o include în mecanismul aglomerat al existen]ei zilnice. Ac]iuni utile [i inutile tatueaz\ epiderma fiin]ei noastre imersat\ în centrifuga citadinului. Ne c\ut\m identitatea. Tânjim dup\ momentul de pauz\.

DIVA is the ageless woman, the ordinary woman. She considers the ritual of her self-image cosmetization a natural practice which she includes in the every day crowded mechanism of existence. Useful and useless actions tattoo the epidermis of our being immersed into the urban centrifuge. We are searching for our identity. We crave for a break.

Lucrarea media DIVA const\ într-un monitor pe ecranul c\ruia se poate citi, într-o not\ auster\ / ironic\, un slogan THE MOST I LIKE IS DOING NOTHING. Imagini din RITUALUL COSMETIZ|RII prezint\ în loop o mi[care repetitiv\ de gimnastic\ care sugereaz\ travaliul, rutina, up and down-ul nostru zilnic. Paradoxul rezult\ din inten]ia de a te opri, explicit pronun]at\ în slogan, [i imposibilitatea de a o face.

THE MOST I LIKE IS DOING NOTHING is Diva’s slogan in an ironic, austere manner. The Ritual of Cosmetization presents in a loop a repetitive gymnastic motion that suggests labor, routine, and our daily ups and downs. The paradox comes from the intention of stopping, clearly specified in the slogan, and the impossibility of doing so.
