Sky of Artifice

Sky of Artifice, 2019. In collaboration with Didem Erbaş.
Rug, led lights. 1.5 x 2 m.

The floor installation is made up of two elements. The plastic rugs, very often used outdoors to prevent slipping, were purchased from an underground pass, which had flooded during the heavy rains a few weeks past. There were marks of the water on the rugs, which we mimicked and repeated using a knife. We mirrored the artificial lighting of exhibition spaces to draw attention to trigger a flickering of the gaze up and down.
