Public Shelters Residency

In times of bombings, entire populations are being isolated into public shelters. The shelters spaces are designed for basic needs by the community's security coordinator, and undergo impulsive change by the staying with a temporary consciousness. Being underground for unknown duration invites boredom, idle, anxiety, density, play, social intimacy and mental fortification. Within this standby the communities remain outside of time and with restricted movement for reasons of protection.

The works respond to the formalism of the fortification, stays within it and use it as a starting point: order, organization, stiffness, reduction, restraint and a maximum level of control becomes a platform for playing and distraction from the concrete, in an attempt to point out temporary aesthetics and non-functional in the ascetic space. The public shelter becomes a photographic-sculptural space, a studio.
