Observation Room Project elucidates topics in regard to the politics of the suspended space and the observant body within it.  It is realized each time in a different space, in collaboration with a different group of diverse people and artists from all over the world.  

Creating liminal spaces in transition, where attention into action is set as a base,   
draws its strength from the tension between the human subject and its surroundings. it takes into consideration the vital entanglements of one body with other kinds of bodies therefore this action is relational and maternal in its perspective. Exercised through the reduction of movement in relation to time, the use of abstraction develops a perception of the body as a fragmented form, and ultimately, as an affecting force. With Observation Room distinct slowness, gaze, sharing of space, and gradual progression, it enables “a listening”, perhaps even a "healing" space where form is captured and can be contemplated. video

"Observation Room commences in the auditorium right by the gym. Any line between the performers and audience is blurred; and this act of blurring, it emerges in the course of one’s experience and interaction with the piece, is in fact a fundamentally key theme of the work...Observation Room invites members of the audience to both enter and remain in it. The duration of one’s stay, and the choice whether to embrace a passive spectator role or to actively engage and interact – is entirely up to us".
