Your form seems to be that of an organic compound. Dimpled and irregular, you may be related to an living organism or an inanimate natural surface. All over and sporadic, like the surface of a rock or the shoal of the ocean. Your body is woven, existing both on top of and beneath multiple elements, at times even yourself. You flop, squeeze,and quiver, reacting to your surroundings, and through your physicality you articulate an invisible pressure. Your placement and interaction with various elements clearly indicates a moment of activity. This effect signifies a past moment of agency, of movement, either by you or some anonymous force. Of course we only have a record of you as an image. No observable movement is possible in your current state. We must rely upon small indications of past moments. Carefully posed, it is unknown whether you are living, dead, or simply a body at rest.
