Starting point of my work is based on documenting personal experience inside a real space, using visual and non-visual language. My guiding idea rests on individual poetics. It helps me emphasise the experience of recognizing the absurd state and everyday banalities which belong to general experience. Using objective transformation during my work I strive towards the recognition of time in which I’m in, turning towards the panopticon project and ironizing it in my artistic practices. By occupying the real space, I talk about the context of getting isolated and I perceive reality as signs which inform the spectator about the states that culture, artists and works are in. Under the influence and pressure of culture, I wish to express the imposed feeling, thought and behaviour which constantly shape us.
