Evoking the tension of a stage-like moment, the light and colours symbolise the performative nature of social transformation and adaptation through the reflected figures of the viewer themselves and their surroundings. Influenced by sociologist Irving Goffman's theory of 'social performativity', the shifting roles and contradictions of everyday life, which change according to the scene and situation, are expressed through the play of light and the changing reflections. The work is a medium that illuminates our social behaviour and its nature through images that change according to environment, time and the presence of the viewer!
