This study is a complementary text that offers a reading of the works I produced in an intensive two year period and indicates the textual substructure them. The main theme of my projects has been the exploration of one’s relationship with its surrounding space, which carries central importance in the construction of identity. In an epoch where the static four walled private space has been liquidated into a more performative sense of personal space, I investigated how people perform in the space and personalize it. I take the space as a playground where the two distinctive, different realms undulate, a ground for practicing the limits of two separate realms: public and private. With the tactics the subject develops, the space is tamed, domesticated, surmounted, and so called outside is incorporated into the territory of the subject; on the other hand, the surrounding environment also follows a similar path and responds to the subject’s incorporation tactics.
