This body of work or rather, collection, is a representation of a character in search of a niche (archetypal character in motion and empty seats). This character is depicted in different yet closely similar poses/motion poses, in a sequential manner to create a feeling of movement. The character moves in different spaces to exist or to make the space exist; the spaces change the character, or the character changes the appearance of the space. Within the collection, there are empty seats as an invitation for temporary comfort (or a niche) as the character keeps moving on.
I am trying to depict the existence of humans, using myself as a study, how we move in different spaces in search of temporary spaces/positions or niches.
