About the work:
’12’ is a collage note book recording the experience of an experimental project which involved staying for one night, once a week, for a total duration of three months at 12 different home environments. The experiment consisted of spending a brief period of time in each house, doing the same methodic actions such as having a conversation with the host, borrowing clothes to sleep, measuring and tracing the room where I slept in…etc. While working on this project I became some sort of nomadic intruder collecting high lights of the daily routine. This project has developed since then and resulted to a visit in Mongolia and expand the project there into site-specific installations.
