Imagination

‚Äč

Imagination explores the various intersections between diverse forms of culture, identity, and language. Traditional hand-cranked music boxes are installed throughout the gallery, with video projections laid atop them. Viewers are invited to participate with the work by turning the hand cranks and exploring the markings on the paper strips that emerge. Meanwhile, an aural collage in five different languages referring to the artist’s own identity—Turkish, Albanian, Circassian, German, and English—plays continually. The result is an immersive experience of light, shadow, word, movement, and sound.
