We are surrounded by invisible bubbles which are used in the protection of ourselves as an invisible wall that forms our territory. The bubbles are explored as a mixture of feelings, emotions, imagination and thoughts which we carry with us and which are formed by our perception of our environments. I suggest that the formation of the bubbles is different at every moment, depending on how we feel about our external situation.


I attempt to put forward the notion that we live in our own interpretations of our environments and embody the relationship between the bubbles and environment through an unpredictable situation which can be the driving force of the bubbles.
