My work consists of tiny changes in daily life. It is based on the notion that spaces contain memories and time as a result of human action and behavior. These memories can easily be ignored as our attention is distracted by elements that occupy our daily life. I point the attention to this phenomenon by suggesting the viewer to notice and rediscover trivial things.
I have been working to document the tiny incidences in daily situation. During 3 months residency program, I want to go out to take photos and videos to make sketches in the city. I make tiny changes in the ordinary situation by installing some absurd items. They would be documented and shown as observations of sight specific installations.
