The degree of coexistence and compression of the past and present is strengthened by our experience of perceiving time. This turning point divides the past, present and future while allowing us to notice the moments that recur every day in our daily life. This infinite divisibility scheme formed in our memory moves towards perceptions and images by getting rid of space and time. The work, which deals with the concept of duration, in which Henri Bergson defines the pure tendencies found by intuition as a result of experience, is a reflection of the repeated moments and images for me throughout the pandemic.
These moments in my daily life, when repeated more and more with the pandemic, opened up an intuitive field specific to consciousness. These moments contain an immeasurable singularity like when we are bored, afraid, tired and happy. Totally direct, completely out of life...
