Geography of Senses

Geography of Senses is an ongoing project focused on how we are constantly being shaped by desire. In many ways it is a project of an invisible language‘s translation, a formation of a new set of meanings and signs in order to trace emotional states and their complexity gradually, like a gentle peeling of the ultrathin layers of skin. The nervous system of living beings and the energy flowing from the heart to the brain and beyond convey a message to the environment. The artist‘s intention is to collect an array of experiences that are linked to feelings and sensations. This project does not have any particular question to answer, it travels through the body like through a vast desert, not aiming towards any particular destination but observing the continuous change, transition and transformation in the seemingly definite composition of the human body.
