Privacy is the ability of an individual to seclude himself. Every person has its own physical and mental reality. A reality which ca be view as a state of autonomy, as an awareness of one’s capacity to control the boundary between self and other. In general, one cannot have a reasonable expectations of privacy in things held to the public. The lack of privacy in the public was an interesting challenge for me. How can an individual reach a state of privacy into public space? With this question in mind, I started investigating the human behavior into public spaces of different kind. Places such as the train, the bus stop and the elevator.
After documenting various situations I could analyze them with the idea to understand the people outside the private zone. When do the people stay away from each other? What makes one to keep a distance and how one successfully shut off in public spaces?
In conclusion of my research, I notices that people shut off often in the public spaces. They try to avoid each other by minimizing the basic senses of hearing, seeing and smelling.
“Atmoterrorism”, light art installation, represents the negative impact of the sun as a light source of harmful rays. The power of the sun is hyperbolic showed through line, color, surface, volume and tone. The light art installation is engaged with the idea of creating room in the room, a play of form, intensity, visibility and resonance, which all together lead to multiple experience of the visitor. This creation of an exaggerated sun environment is inspired from the terrorism, especially from the form of atmoterrorism which Prof. Dr. Peter Sloterdijk describes. Аtmoterrorism is the assault not on the body of the enemy, but on his or her environment. This terrorism of the atmosphere is to be understood as a human-made form of quake that turns the enemy’s environment into a weapon against them.

Color scenography in the house of Hermès. A research on the connection between season and window displays.
The window displays of Hermes made by Leila Menchari are an experience of absolute timelessness. This absolute timelessness we can be reached when the window display is in its level of coherence. The contrast created in the context of the season will attract the attention of the consumer. Color affects us emotionally, with different colors evoking different emotions. In short, color has the capacity to affect the human nervous system and I see existing relation between window display color scheme and the seasons of the year.
