About works / performance

My artistic practice originates from my fascination and observation of sound. Sound has its potentiality that opens different kinds of dialogues with other domains of medium and practices. With my explorations with sound in various artistic contexts, I situate sound as revealing the issues of listening, as a background or means of creative practices, as passage of philosophical thinking and as a way for exploring new paradigms.
