as rhizomes whisper, 2023

200 x 2000 cm

styrofoam, aluminum, epoxy/polyester/rubber resin, fiberglass, sound, moving image

The mixed-media installation ‘as rhizomes whisper’ is presented as a growing rhizomatic network consisting of sound , sculptures, wires and moving images presented on digital screens. The work aims to reveal the machinery behind our human ego-construction and thereby suggests that the ‘ego’ or ‘self’ is a construct, a collection of affirmed images, an identity that is heavily subjected to its social-political environment. Are we not all but biological machines, consuming, producing, reproducing? The work refers to the similarity between the nature of the human mind and the nature of computers and digital entities.”
