Portals

2019

"MA Chelsea Fine Art Dress Rehearsal (Part 1)", Chelsea College of Arts, London (April 2019).

Permanence and impermanence.

I will never be ok where I am, I will always want to be somewhere else. I will never want to be myself, I will always pretend to be someone else.

Glass domes and portals.

-spheres and circles.

Dissolution of body and mind//

Lost of identity//

Screen and body as one//

Flexible//

Ephemeral.

“You are suddenly rendered vulnerable to phychosexual emotions when you should be focusing on your meeting. This single disembodied message has altered your presence in the real world. You are now alive in a completely different way: temporally and spatially dislocated in your mind.”

 

(Goodbye world!, Omar Kholeif)

Exploring the idea of screens as portals... related to how screens disrupt our sense of reality in everyday life, as well as to the contemporary experience of information through multiple views/windows.

Screens are points of access to virtual realities where we become immersed in the world of our virtual selves. They signify entertainment and work, distraction and boredom, love and anger.
