Installation: AWASEed

AWASEed (A: I don’t like you. B: Me too.), is a mixed-media installation that challenges the status of ‘self’. The installation depicts multiple layers of AWASed, which is a strategy that I developed for coexistence without mutual understanding. The strategy evolved through workshops where participants use body movement and linguistics to explore contradictions at both personal and social levels. Here, resolution is not the goal. Contradiction is seen as potential, not a problem, and perspective is broadened. The installation expands upon the workshops, utilizing the AWASed strategy to unpack our sensibilities towards a space and expose contradictions between the inside and outside of ‘self’.
