The works explore the shapes, materials, and properties of bodies digitally. When does the computer-generated image feel soft, warm, or vulnerable? In infinite loops, the image tries to reach corporeality over and over again. At the same time, the stylized objects have a plastic-like, glossy look and create a tension between artificiality and physicality. This artificial world is the framework and starting point in which the question of bodily experience is to be explored. In my artistic practice, I examine the perception of digital experience and explore its limits. It's about the longing for closeness, intimacy, and feeling in an increasingly digitized world. As a result, the works also relate to our current situation, in which we experience
a massive change in our relationship with our own and the other body. Touch and closeness have become rarer, and our interactions are increasingly occurring virtually. At the same time, the works can be seen as a futuristic scenario in which our fleshly bodies have become obsolete, and their absence is mourned.
