“The Incident”

I seek to create different spaces based on narratives and representing how buildings are destroyed and reconstructed. These spaces are created in my mind based on events from different periods. Utilizing elements related to each event is also reminiscent of moments in which you can reappear and search. This structure makes it possible to uninterruptedly and continuously destroy, remove, rebuild, or add elements and recount narratives.
