Tiny Black Box
Is the Butoh performance in collaboration with Lieke Verheul. I execute the framework, the space and probes used in the space each stands as an independent work but all together creating a stage. In that period, I was concerned and studying excessive and obsessive use of cubical forms in human made structures. I came up with series of works in relation to this topic, taking into account that our very first hand private space ‘room’ is also mostly follows same structural routine.

“Everybody has a room about inside them.” Franz Kafka

Inspired by use of phrases such as “black box” we made the work. Tiny Black Box supposed to represent very primitive, unconscious, often suppressed and hidden instinct of human species affected by structures of modern systems, in their architectural or infrastructural build or cultural frames, in other words hi own new path of evolution, highly directed by technological elements. Distorted and brought out of their normal functionality of objects present in space is to emphasize non-ordinary state of the mental and intuitive dimension.
