The colors of the glitter used by :mentalKLINIK in the BITTER MEDICINE #02 project are switched at specific time intervals. The Puff Out installation, which is the focus of the work, is based on the instant patterns created by the endless and non-repetitive movements of 8 smart robotic vacuum cleaners on a floor covered with glitter, and the combination of light and form is digitally transferred to the audience 24/7 via the Borusan Contemporary website, facilitated by online systems.
