Screen Light

Virtual, (un)real reality seems to hypnotize us, tying us to the devices that give us that reality.
The face of Gorgon-Medusa is an improvisation on the portret of Medusa by neo-baroque French sculptor Laurent-Honoré Marqueste.
("Perseus Kills Medusa", 1903). Although the myth of Medusa has often been interpreted in feminist contexts, another aspect of the ambiguous myth has been chosen for this work: the three Gorgons sisters were winged sea monsters with snakes instead of hair, and whoever looked them in the eye was petrified. The screaming Gorgon-Medusa expresses the effects of the blue screens, the state of freezing when immersed in the screen, and also the effort to free yourself from imprisonment on the screens.
