Barefoot Walker

Istanbul, 2019 - Seoul, 2021

Walking is one of the basic progressive movements of human that contributed majorly to the anthropological evolution. As the hands and the face are freed by standing, human`s physical relation with The Earth mostly became limited to the soles. This relation is later altered by the filter of organic and inorganic materials.

The Barefoot Walker links a basic movement of human race to our digitalized environments as a current state of human`s walking-based progression. The actual soil hosts two digital screens displaying plants and a tree`s water reflection on the ground, suggesting an inspiration for the co-existence of the digital and the physical along with an intuitively groping for ecology-friendly use of the digital media.
