Eye contact; Diorama of thoughts

Dioramas in museums are a way to bring people closer to something they don’t have access to. This diorama invites viewers to look into an inner world, letting people in but not too close. The access to the world is limited, one gets an insight but cannot stay there for too long. The world is hidden.

The manifestation of this inner life is fragmentary. The subject of the image is between reality and fantasy. Storytelling and the act of creating a story are important in this world. The characters in the work are both innocent and uncanny. The objects are set up in order but played with in disorder.

This imaginary world and the characters who live in it are alive in my and my experiences of relationships with others. The psychological effects of relationships are explored with childlike expressions using masks and various play. The space is to be experienced psychologically and emotionally. It is a space for understanding thoughts.

Performers 2. year students from Contemporary Dance Practices of IUA:
