“My work is mostly about accessibility of space. I am asking the viewer what and where are the boundaries of the space we live in. For better understanding I can give brief explanation with the example of the computer generated world (CGW). I can see there so many similarities with our reality even if the CGW is created by man there is always a space which is meant to be discovered and then space all around it, which is sort of necessity and is not intended to be discovered, although they both must be there because one cannot exist without the other. I see a similar situation in our everyday reality, where the world created by us is a synonym to thoughts, ideas and rules, the world built by man such as cities, houses and apartments. There is a simultaneous reality to this one, existing beyond the borders of the human world. We know it as the unconsciousness, instincts or more physically the nature or cosmos.
A maquette is being a connection between the illusion and physical reality. It brings the installation from fiction closer to the reality”.
