The video of the installation: http://vimeo.com/14572506
Walking on the busy streets of the city, I like to disregard everything
that visually surounds me and only take part at the "show" created by the voices. The story
fragments come together in my mind, making a "contemporary novel". Therefore, I put all this
voices in images and created an installation that shows how i see and fell this "street show" and
also asks the viewer how chance and hazard can infl uence our life.
In the work Spider Web I wanted to make a statement about a problem I feel, that people are somehow connected with each other but they do not care too much for the person next to them, they are caught in an existential network and they can't move outside it, to be able to know each other and even themselves better. With the small, red, fl ickering light on a completely black background, I put an alarm that permanently warns people about
the situation we are already in.

This was an assignment from school, to design a Quartet card game.
A pack contains 24 cards, divided into 6 groups of 4 cards. Quartets is played with three or more players, with the aim to win all the quarts (sets of four). Each card usually has a number and letter (1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 2A, 2B etc. ) in the top right or left corner of the card.The cards are shuffled and dealt evenly between all the players and the cards get held face up in a players hand. The player to the dealers left starts by asking another player if they had a certain card (example, card 4C) which would help the player create a quart. If the player does have the card, then they hand it over. If the player doesn't, then it becomes his turn to ask.When a quart is created, or a complete quart was dealt, then the cards creating the quart are placed in front of the player.The game ends when all the quarts have been created. The winner is the person with the most quarts.
In my Quarted game, I replaced the cards, with plain black bags. The "cards" differ only by what is inside them, and the player has to fell the "card". A set of four, is made by bags which contain the same king of object, with 1 item, 2, 3 or 4 items in one bag.
