"Fence"

 
      
       With this wall painting-installation I depict the metaphysical fence of the nationalistic sentiment bounding people into societies. This fence becomes the boundary in which these people get encircled, enclosed.
       Examining the painted stripes stretching throughout the whole room the viewer moves his/her head upward following the stripes painted on the ceiling. In a blink of a moment, a sense of disorientation is created caused by an awareness that the viewer is stepping on painted stripes on floor while at the same time tries to focus on a painted stripes on the ceiling. It is this condition of disorientation that I use to describe the experience of a real disorientation of people living in within artificially created, "ideology, a sentiment, a form of culture, or a social movement that focuses on the nation," ignoring the outcomes of such acts.
