With this artwork I am observing concept of reason trough physical exercise. As in any part of you life also in physical exercise there is possibility of overdose. There is a point that something that is constructive of its nature changes destructive. Buzz makes you go faster and further ahead even when your body is breaking down. During video work I am running myself to the point of total breaking down on a treadmill. Spectator can see the change from the buzz to the despair and finally physical pain.

While protecting one always comes to isolate something outside. While building shields or shelters one is choosing according to his own be- liefs. Hard armour is something which protec- tion one can seek or find from oneself. But at the end shelter and comfort it provides be- comes prison. It allows us only see determinate procedure of live. Person can build concrete or mental borderline in between oneself and rest of the society. So- ciety is offering us set up norm that person can either choose to follow or fight against. Both of those can also be passive hiding. As continuous theme in my work I am reflect- ing borders that human beings are building to themselves in between themselves and society -- control and isolation that relates to this. Process that is behind these works is often important for me in person.
