In order to research
"how to create deceptive appearances and
affect spectators' perception about space,
I started this collection
of altered reality moments
using as tools
a miniature boat and my body.
I see my tools as upsetters that enter reality scenes,
alter them in multiple ways
and create virtual spaces where stories can settle in.
While collecting I am also exploring and discovering new ways of
altering these reality landscapes. These ways suggest how the
collection should grow and in which direction.
But there was that day when I passed by this window and I wondered what else they can do.
Which are their secret powers?
They are everywhere ,
they are objective, explicit and truthful.
We are so used to them.
They don't surprise us anymore.
They are just part of our routine.
We are aware of them and their reflective power.
We encounter them every morning.
They exist as meeting points
They are deeply immersed in illusions and dream images; their eye glides only over the surface of things and sees "forms"; their feeling nowhere lead into truth, but contents itself with the reception of stimuli, playing, as it were, a game of blindman's buff on the backs of things.
