  • 4Any scape, landscape or mindscape, lies surrounded by horizons. A landscape is not a land and a mindscape is not a mind, unless they are viewed, and it is the view-ing that assigns them their horizons. Turn your head sideways and the horizons move. Landscapes are dependent on our view, and mindscapes too: the limit of a landscape is not the limit of the land it is the limit of our vision, the limits of a mindscape is not the lim-it of our minds but the limit of our inner vision.

    LANDSCAPE / MINDSCAPE

  • 5Any scape, landscape or mindscape, lies surrounded by horizons. A landscape is not a land and a mindscape is not a mind, unless they are viewed, and it is the view-ing that assigns them their horizons. Turn your head sideways and the horizons move. Landscapes are dependent on our view, and mindscapes too: the limit of a landscape is not the limit of the land it is the limit of our vision, the limits of a mindscape is not the lim-it of our minds but the limit of our inner vision.

  • 6They are the limits that arise at the point of

    encounter of the land and the vision. Hori-

    zons are the places where mindscape and

    landscape become indistinguishable: look-

    ing at a landscape is looking at our abili-

    ty to establish horizon onto the land that

    lies there, indifferent. Horizons, there-

    fore, are the encounter of mind and land,

    and this encounter is what makes lands

    into landscapes and minds into mind-

    scapes, all at once. And so, landscapes

    and mindscapes seem to have a new hori-

    zon: each other, in their interdependence.

    The landscape stops at my eyes and stretch-

    es towards the horizon, and my mindscape

    extends from my minds eye to my eyes of

    flesh. There, on the surface of my eyes of

    flesh, mindscape meets landscape. There,

    on the surface of my eyes, landscapes meet

    mindscapes, and they turn into each other.

    Which is a metaphor for the other: is my

    eye of flesh a metaphor for my minds eye,

    or the reverse?

    LANDSCAPE / MINDSCAPE

  • 7My mind of flesh alone would not see, and

    would never have the power to set down the

    horizons that turn a land into a landscape.

    My minds eye alone would not be able to

    ever make the encounter with the land that

    horizons require. Maybe they only exist with

    each other, maybe they both make their

    struggle in parallel: a fight to survive the

    tricks of perspective, to travel in the scape

    to see what lies behind each hill, tree, build-

    ing, idea, fear, or memory. For my mindscape,

    like any landscape exists because it is mine,

    because it exists in my perspective and

    there alone. That is to say, it exists because

    it is made of obstructions and discoveries,

    guesses and broken expectations: the teach-

    ings of travels. Just like landscapes exist

    just because objects can hide each other or

    blur in the background. The horizons of our

    mindscape exist because our mind stretch-

    es away from us, and leaves us behind.

    Only the natures rules apply. Man-made rules and laws are barriers that

    block our perception. God is the only enforcer.

    Earth turns to earth, ash turns to ash, dust turns to dust.

    Only the natures rules apply.

    GOD IS NOT BLUE

    They gazed, and dared at last to comprehendThey were the Simurgh and the journeys end.

    They see the Simurgh - at themselves they stare,And see a second Simurgh standing there;They look at both and see the two are one,That this is that, that this, the goal is won.

    Dj vu only shows itself in abstract visions. Its fractions are always limited, with layers and layers of hidden memo-

    ries. When deja vu is experienced, spaces become familiar, diluted by

    our perception.

    A city is chaotic. And it is becoming more and more chaotic. Peoples actions are formed by chaos but also these actions further feed the chaos. And within this

    chaos everyone creates their own func-tioning path and this creates a new order

    where we are all affected from one another

    On the day we were born all the grim reap-ers chanted our names. We were born of

    sour milk, born of broken hymen. And we were told, where both life and

    death are inevitable, all our wounds would be mortal.

    Eyescape explores our unconscious and con-scious will to stare at the people around us in public transportation. Civil inattention is the process whereby strangers who are in close proximity demonstrate that they are aware of one another, without imposing their presence on each other. We want to look at each other,

    but if we are civilized, we try not to. Eyescape is depicting our will to

    look at other people.

    Ambivalence is a performative video that focuses on the feeling of being stuck with

    the pleasure of forgetting the chaos of daily life by watching TV, desensitization

    of the self and deviation from social and political issues.

    This escape is coupled with the unpleas-ant feeling of being trapped in front of a TV, the agony of loss of time, leaving one

    in a constant guilt trip.

    Who are you, Jenny? addresses the issues of identity. It steeply illustrates the challenges associated with being a

    woman in a heavily male dominated world. The figure of woman is introduced to us not just as a mother who looks after her

    baby and cooks, but also as a criminal, an artist, a boxer and in many other roles that

    comes and goes in her mind.

    WHO ARE YOU, JENNY?

    Do social roles define women or are they just obstacles to keep themselves apart from who they really are? In this video, inspired by the find the match game,

    it is intended to question the social roles women carry.

    528 of happiness is a work that high-lights the incompatibility between our

    emotional states and our expression of them. While it tries to reveal that this

    nonconformity requires us to perform in a certain manner, it inevitably illustrates the blurring of boundaries between what can be seen as acted and what otherwise

    is a natural reflection of our pure emo-tions. Consequently, the viewer is invited to ponder on the inevitable question: is alienation to self and others the ultimate

    end in this perpetual performance of conformism?
