    I look at my world from my shoes | 2016

The recording form of the view from below is an opposition to the phenomenon of flying drones. I capture the world from the floor perspective, while walking or being still. In this way, the shots are determined and composed by the mechanics and rhythms of the steps of one foot. Without manipulation, for a limited period of time, with the camera embedded in the instep of my shoe, I experience an internal tension every time I approach the incriminated place. It is not about capturing intimacy, but about experiencing the situation that I am facing and at the same time working with the possibilities of my failure. A vision is created, which, by its visuality, reaches the edge of correctness in relation to the improperness of personal and intimate disruption by movement in public space.
