Blind hands

In my video work "Blind Hands" I used a body as a screen to project digital images on. I dedicated this work to one of the human senses I consider in this era disappearing and that would be the sense of touch. The growth of technology and overcoming digitization made an effort to develop a substitute and to please human need for touch. What I have in mind are sensitive displays and other forms of interactive devices. What I try to analyze is evolution of communication that is reaching towards digitized forms. And I want to suppose the question in what senses it is false? Personally, I find that the communication evolved but was unable to replace the knowledge that we receive from the human touch. In my work, I placed human body to be a source of exploration. To be an object. The exploring subjects are digital hands. Therefore I named them 'Blind'.

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis is a visual response to the book 'Water and Dreams: An Essay on the Imagination of Matter' of Gaston Bachelard. It reflects inner condition and affection.
