Dear Colleagues and Students,
You are cordially invited to an artist talk by the Department of Communication and Design.
Speaker: Ebru Özseçen (Munich)
Abstract: “Symbiosis” represents the complex but less explored domain of interdependent relation between artwork and the place, where artwork is shown as sensory space. “Symbiosis” illustrates itself within the realms of contemporary art exhibition criteria. The core intention of the approach is to train the sensorial experience and to recognize the relationships which define the conditions of space in terms of perception and execution parameters for architecture and artwork.
