Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

“Life itself is tension”

Straight lines can be the visual limit we can see. The road through which the bike passed appears a straight line. That straight line is the trail left by the round wheel spinning. A circle is a straight line and a straight line can be a circle.

Many of the things we currently believe to be truth can be interpreted in a variety of ways. From small debates starting from differences to big wars, our lives are a continuation of tension every moment, eventually heading towards death.

We are all others to each other. Recognizing the difference we have from each other if we live with respect and love others!

From the Philosophy of ‘The Other’ by Emmanuel Levinas (1906-1995), Levinas defines ‘The Other’ as an eternal ‘the other’ who cannot be involved, ruled, or dragged into one’s thought.

Artist Statement:

“Life itself is continuation of tensions.

The track left by a bicycle is a straight line but it is a straight line made by a round wheel. The straight line can be considered as a part of an endless circle.

Differences between people, religion and race, create small arguments that expand into large wars. If the finite concept of life could be seen from the perspective of infinite time and space, it may be considered all the same. I wanted to express the tension created by differences as a ‘peace’ made up of the interaction between the straight lines and circles in the positive way.”
