ARTWORK
This artwork entitled Agkiya Smara or Digital Memory will be activated by a visitor who is in the installation room. The visitor’s body movements will be recorded and immediately re-presented as if in a mirror but in another form, i.e. the human character of Agugn’s skeleton on a television display on one of the walls of the room. I hope that this translation process of an audience’s physical presence can be absorbed by the audience into a distorted new memory. They will experience it in a small, dynamic room, in which there will also be a 500 Hz white noise that aims to stimulate the brain to relax and concentrate. This sound will be heard more clearly by the audience who are inside the room, in front of the television. On the video display, in the form of a human skeleton activated by audience’s gestures, I try to purge all identities into a purer one, in which all humans are the same. I see this experience with the audience as a form of invitation to be more aware of the changes that occur around us and how we can respond to them with optimism and criticism.
