The video series reinterpret the Seven Deadly Sins made by Catholic culture in the context of the 21st century’s virtual society. The ASMR videos are artificially generated brain stimulations shared on online platforms, followed by millions. These affect the pleasure center of our brain with visual and audio stimuli that trigger the same processes in our brain as the experience of the Seven Sins. I use this ASMR video style (mukbang, haul, slime, makeup etc.) to reinterpret each Sin.
In my video, in which I search for where art stems from, I play the role of Eve when she is committing the Original Sin. This biblical act symbolizes the cognitive evolution of the human brain that made our ancestors able to create abstract representative ideas. This is the source of language and art. But this cognitive 'Big Bang' is also a burden causing general anxiety.

I plunge into a dark space. My body is drifted by the streams. I am groping in the dark. This is how we are ’swimming’ through our life without knowing where we are coming from and where we are going to.

In my work, I am dealing with apocalyptic symbols. The original meaning of the word 'apocalypse' is to reveal. The Book of Revelation contains symbols that refer to the continuous change of historical periods and predicts a new era when people's connection to religion changes and the phenomenon of sacred becomes virtualized and separated from various religious systems.

Initiation was a sacred ritual in human tribes in order to train young adults to become full member of the group. In our current culture each individual should build their own role in the society by releasing and gaining new social connections. This is how we create our social mask that represents our function in the community.

My work is a prayer that is irrespective of cultures and religions. I created a poem that can be a general prayer for the human of the 21st century. I examined the sources of religions and art and tried to integrate this knowledge into a short poem that could summarize the essence of religions and art.
“When the wind blows I’m gentle
When the rain falls I cry
When the storm comes I tremble
When the sun sets I die”

During my journeys everywhere in the world I am wondering why I'm going further. In the video I climb into my bag that I carry in the scenes. I am a burden for myself but I'm the only reason for my journey. No more, no less.

I project virtual skin through the resin copy of a human back. White words with meaning connects to the phenomena of liberalization appear on the surface. These start to cover each other until the full picture becomes white. This way the body can be released from its material skin.

I project my feet through my transparent boots. But my shoes don't move. I stay in the same place during my journey. I combine the Eastern philosophy of motionless eternality with the Western linear way of thinking. The result represents the paradox nature of our world.

The video projected onto the plastic portrait visualizes a dream. The film is visible from the other side of the transparent mask because the projection is happening inside the plastic face. This is a transparent reproduction of my body. I am dreaming about my creation process because artistic creation and dreaming have the same unconscious roots. Opening and closing my eyes frames the stills and break of the dream.
