Cardboards, acrylic paints, text, insulation tapes, sound and voice recordings
This artwork is an assemblage of materials such as cardboards, texts, sound recordings and an audio interview.
The sound recordings are layered with guitar tunes, bird calls, trekking sounds and #05-03 Mixed Sound recording incorporates sample sounds of electro robotics loop rhythms.
The texts are meant to be read as subtitles branching into both imagination and deep thinking. These conceptual abstractions emerge from the subtle order of everyday life and spaces/places.
