SUMMARY :

'Seabed of Metropolis' is an installation that uses the abstraction of the ordinary into oceanic projection that encompasses mental space for subtleties, ambiguities and resonance. Its inspiration comes from my perceptive experience of noise in the city.

Merging field-recorded soundscape into my virtual imagination of perception, the body of art transcends traffic noise of the city into a marine scenario embraced by echoes of sea waves. It elevates the viewer to a mental clarity of distance - a meditative state where the viewer's perception of our city reorients. By doing so, it reveals underneath/underlying personal qualities of authenticity and free will, which I find very often, fade through time passing and overwhelming daily interactions. (a consequence of time/ through time)

'Seabed of Metropolis' suggests sublimity of mentality in an empirical sense which is also my artistic pursuit.
