[ISEA2016] Artist Statement: Eylul Dogruel — Lisa

Artist Statement

Animation, 2015, 1’52”, ISEA2016 Hong Kong Open Sky Project Honorable Mention

It is a common practice to associate and add human like characteristics when representing inanimate objects. In this project I was curious if reverse was possible. Could a building become person like. One of the challenges of this project was to make a projection that made sense from different angles. For this reason, Lisa has two faces and two expressions, depending on which corner of the building you view her from.
