Installation Detail


On the way to work is a multidisciplinary work  which employs  three  major components : a video, audio system and series of sculpted ants. Based on the connection between the city and the natural world. In this installation I used sculpted ants and movies of city dwellers to weave a fictional story in which the viewer can become involved both visually and emotionally. By using a variety of media to draw a viewer’s eyes, ears, and physical presence nearer to that synapse, I aim to de-familiarize  both the ants and the city, thereby strengthening the impact of each.
