A Noise from the Outer Shell of Earth, 2018, multimedia installation
Work commissioned by the Niet Normaal Foundation
The German artist Funda Gül Özcan makes contemporary dioramas; display cases often used in natural history museums. Within these display cases, environments are created with a wide variety of digital, natural and handmade materials. For ROBOT LOVE, Gül Özcan delved into our human tendency of bending new technologies towards a human form. In an almost perverse manner we continuously create our own Uncanny Valley. Take your time to absorb the layers of this artwork. It is like reading a poem, where the sum of the sentences – in this case the visual layers – give a complex picture in which smaller stories can be discovered.
