Mobile’ project is a tactile-sound installation that draws the question of perceiving and experiencing the real space, as given through a technological mediations.

Internet based communication tools have become an indispensable part of our lives and these ways of exchanging information have been giving us different approaches. The illusion and afterimage we simulate and imagine, by developing our own cultural and social experience via the Internet, can affect the way we identify and understand real space.


Mobile’ project functions as a trigger for promoting the awareness of digital illusion while the visitors see and experience their surroundings through the spherical glasses. And it would have a similar purpose like as the totems in the film ‘Inception’ (Christopher Nolan, 2010) that help the main characters to check whether they are in a dream or in the real world. The totems are a sort of medium for keeping track of reality, reminding them of their sense of place when the distinctions between everyday life and virtual reality have become blurred.

Thus, this sculptural installation draws the question of perceiving and experiencing the real space, as given through a mediated perception: ‘I - Technology -World’ (Ihde, 1990: 45-47).
