A Transcendental Object
Noumenon: (in Kantian philosophy) a thing as it is in itself, a posited object or event as distinct from a thing as it is knowable by human sense and/or perception, through phenomenal attributes. The term is generally used when contrasted with, or in relation to, the term phenomenon, which refers to anything that can be apprehended by or is an object of the senses.
Noumenon is a site-specific compilation of Buyukberber's last 4 year of audiovisual work and explorations; from emergent systems to out-of-body experiences; from transcendental objects to the symbols of the collective unconscious, exhibited first time in New York City for a year long exhibition.
The installation has a central element, a highly intricate laser cut wood sculpture "Ouroboros 4" by Gabriel Schama and projection mapped with Buyukberber's visuals.
