Tree, Interrupted from Yeliz Karadayi on Vimeo.


This tree invites people closer with a natural serenity and ambience, but explores a unique condition of human interaction.   At close proximity, the curious nature of the tree invites tactility and intervention.  However, upon intervention, the ambience becomes disrupted with loud connotations.

This project explores human intervention in a natural landscape and places it in a clear audible expression.  Today’s world is dense with invasive interactions, creating a damaging atmosphere to natural and social ecologies.  This project provides a reflection about the nature of sensory overload, specifically as it relates to human curiosity.

Enchanted Object: “Unusual Handshake” By Amy Friedman and Gina Huang (2014)


Interacting with another persons hand is how we create relationships and begin conversations with new people, but what happens when there is no person to the hand? The hand has its own personality to tell a story but how do you interact with it? Would you trust this hand?

While being placed in a bathroom we were able to watch people interact and look weirdly upon what the hand was, they tried to touch it, and when they hit the right spot water would squirt out at them to their surprise. This hand is meant to be touched, examined and shaken, and in return you are surprised by a squirt gun as a way to leave the imaginary person in peace. But you interacted with a hand without a person, highlighting the persona human extremities contain on their own.
