Internationally exhibiting artist and researcher, Sara Sarshar, aims to engage in uncovering nonknowledge through the creation of a practice, named: y0uph0ria_. Becoming through y0uph0ria_ , with its alternative realms both corporeal and incorporeal, we reach the point, that the mind is the eye. Thus, this practice begins to succeed through y0u, the interactor—it becomes it in experience as it had become it in action; y0uph0ria as the mirror of the self’s experience and thought.
y0uph0ria_ takes the route of an attempt at a truth practice. Through research analyses, the works come forth with CGI practices and creating interactive virtual spaces, as well as physical, tangible sculptures, all linked via trigger codes for motors, which move the surrounding sculptures. The methodology of these new augmented spaces, which namely bind the physical and virtual function through the capture of the sensorial experience, leading y0u to an inner experience.
Evidently, the urgency of opening inaccessible nonknowledge through an inner experience as well as an external sensorial practice, function with the dramatization of spaces such as the latest work of y0uph0ria_ [on view via the web or the physical show of RCA 2022] . Neon light, sound, vibrant colour, varied uses of surfaces and materials, sculpture, trigger based motorized sculptures, interactive virtual spaces: all encompass methods of sensing for the viewer to visualize an experience otherwise named inaccessible____ let us begin this experience, an attempt at truth, an attempt at uncovering nonknowledge.
_____we welcome y0u to the efforts of y0uph0ria_
