About works / performance

It is a major theme in modern times that can be moved easily with a variety of communication, or how can society and the human body take root in place.
OLTA has been expressed in the form to capture the performance to sculpture installations and the image of the present day covered in media and technology from primitive is a memory of ancient times slept under the asphalt.
We aimed how people could share any close connections by searching solutions of how we could disconnect the many boundaries such as between landscape and body, solo and group, and even the ancient time and the future through the performances.
