Viola Lévai: Together with the Space
Within the project I plan to take a conscious presence trip in the centre of Budapest, to grasp the space in its complexity. For me, space is a form that affects all the senses: a tactile, visual, aural, dynamical, rhythmical and fragrance experience. Not constant and motionless, but constantly changing because of the flow of stimulations. It draws a path, surrounds us, gives an atmosphere.
This approach allows me to perceive the streets and squares in a complex way. I can expand their functions and use them for move, play, dance and sing. With the actions, I am able to become an active shaper of the atmosphere of spaces. I link different sensory themes to each location:
I find the most inspiration in applications and workshops that are allowing me to experiment with my physical and mental boundaries through the subject of my inquiry, so I can share what I have found and invite my fellow human beings to explore it. I sense how my examinations affect my every-day presence, my relationship with my environment: they continuously nourish my curiosity, creating a living connection with nature and the people around me.
