Abstract [en]

We human classify things and phenomena by linguistic intellect. We should recognize the borders clearly between things to live a social life. At school we have been educated to act and talk rationally. However I'm wondering if it's really good that everything is demanded to be clear and reasonable "something".

It seems that modern human beings too much believe in their rational intellect and try to erase everything which is out of their understanding. If a science phenomenon is un-analyzable, researchers get heated about making it clear. If someone acts in an incomprehensive way, other people put the title "mental disorder" to that person and exclude him or her from society. However does such rationality-worship really bring us mental satisfaction and true happiness? Are un-understandable unknown things really unnecessary in the world? By getting rid of all those things, isn't modern human in his or her invisible sickness and Torget that we are imperfect creature?

I see a key to recover human-likeness in something which is not anything which we have been trying to exclude from our surroundings. Average weight of our brain is only 1300 grams. The rational world which we construct with that 1300 grams are not everything but only one part of truth. What we can experience in this world is much deeper and richer. We human beings have seen the world as measurable, analyzable and logical, but now we need to recognize our mind and world as a whole embrace, even paradox and irrationality. What I try to do through creating is to reach this something which is not anything at depth of mind and find out how I could communicate with the outside world through my work. Two main issues I investigate:

Why and how do I through craft deal with something which is not anything?

Why and how is something which is not anything necessary in the contemporary world?
