My series of video work, performances and photographs are focused on the female's body and its relationship to different elements such as water, sand, wind and man-made materials such as plastic, paper, rubber and fabrics. The experimentations are developed to look at the action and reaction of the body in different spaces and environments, the transformation of the shape and form of the body that visually changed into a sculpture when affected physically from the elements and materials in order to examine the psychological, corporeal and cultural ways of viewing the human condition. The certain symbols contained in the videos are used to reflect the idea of violence, endurance, communication, as well as gender.

This performance piece was where I tried to fit my body into a small plastic box which was filled with water. I was holding my breath as long as I could during the performance.
