Human beings are now recklessly developing and destroying the environment for their benefit. Humans have gained convenience, but wild animals that live in nature have to lose their homes and leave for new environments and food.
Many animals on the planet are threatened with extinction due to poaching, grazing, and global warming, and many are already extinct. Not only that, but nowadays, the pet population is growing, but organic dogs, organic seedlings and so cruel animal abuse, still random and brutal fur production and animal skin processes…. For so many reasons, animals are killed many times. I wanted to make these animals live in a place where only nature exists, out of reach of humans, and I put them in my work..
The space in the work is a new space only for animals that can be unfolded only when animals wear this eye patch. This eye patch is the only element that animals can enter into this new space, and the existence of the eye patch in the artwork makes the animal stay in nature. Most are endangered and other animals may become endangered or extinct in the future.
In my work, I hope that in this space, animals can leave the real world and rest in this nature full of comfort and tranquility without being harmed by any dangers or people.
