Tools

_MG_1276 as Smart Object-1

The notion of transferred sensation through the use of tools has been used in the studies of prosthetics and coined as Extended Physiological Proprioception, EPP.
In 1974, D.C Smithson presented his research on the development of biological control over man-made systems attached to the body, with a focus on how the brain assimilates signals from external limbs as if their own.

E.P.P serves me as a metaphor for art. I believe art can be that stick; the tool that becomes a physical manifestation of that distance between ourselves and everything around us. It represents the space in-between and, at the same time, allows transference of touch to serve as a conductor for contact.
