The piece “Spiral Aversion” was created as a reaction to the Covid-19 period. The soaring growth of the structure embodies the rising uncertainty of the present time. . The five colorful yet ghostly objects in the installed Spiral Aversion have grown from a dark ground which causes a sudden unsettling feeling. The five objects represent five fingers of a human hand, unsure to touch any unknown surfaces. The objects move and interact with the viewer to reflect the event where our action can further cause an uncomfortable situation. The participant has to be wearing a mask for this piece to react. This phenomenon signifies the fact that society’s only way out of this pandemic is wearing a mask.
