When we imagine a person, he/she consists of a combination of different images in our minds. The aim of this work is to question the act of looking by performing it physically. Even if each of these items point to the whole image, they are transformed into abstract contexts when they separated from whole image. These images are placed on surfaces of different heights emphasize a process, not a moment. The difference between the items’ depth represents the passage of time and the movement of the audience. The goal is to question the act of looking behind the remaining images due to the viewer’s movement, to reconfigure all over again after disrupting the image and perception.
