Abstract

Yuyay Pallki is a large-scale installation placed in the Sonnenschein Gallery. A white wall between two parallel corridors explains the dynamics of the artwork to the audience. It prompts them to pick a side to go through first, taking a piece of paper with them on which they are invited to write down anything and everything that comes to mind.

The artwork is an exploration of the human mind – a hybrid between a psychological experiment and an art experience. I propose that people´s perception is affected by memory, and depending on the audience´s individual and particular experiences they will see and interpret each space differently. However, the stylistic decisions I have made to decorate each side will generate a trend regarding the audience-generated feedback.
