VIRTUAL REALITY STUDY
Under the SHANARAK-TUNDUK
At the centre of the experience, to connect with preserved nomadic culture and its powerful ancestral tribal mythology.
Their myths teach us to live in harmony with the world and its universe, the highest symbol residing in the sacred idea of the Yurt expressing concepts of Family, Clan, Earth, Nature and ultimately Cosmos.
The movement of the universe mirrors the movement of nomadic life.
I will source a number of Yurts focusing on their SHANARAK-TUNDUK : the circular roof with its cross- shaped central opening. I will deconstruct, transform reshape the structure into an installation collaborating with local craftsmen, repurposing tent accessories.
The final monumental installation will travel to Venice to be site specifically installed in overhead floating roof-like position, tent elements reaching down towards the viewer, as seen on VR study.
