“Tik-tak” installation was inspired by the continuous intervention in cultural buildings in cities like Durres and Tirana, the values and cultural heritage of which, are experiencing constant contraction. The “old” and the tradition are named as worthless and “out of order” and are replaced immediately with the “new” which doesn’t have neither history or identity.
Two events served as an inspiration to create “Tik-tak”: the demolition of the National Theater and lastly, the tower rising near the Clocktower.

To make this installation come to life, I have chosen the Clocktower as a symbol, which is the identifying element of Tirana, and put two heavy steel rods. Apart from the hands, these rods face their own weight. Intentionally, the numbers that show the clock are not present and this is interpreted as another symbol connected to the clear message: If we continue intervening cautiously in these buildings and in other important structures with great historic value, we harm not only their identity, but also the memories, the time and the history.

I intervene in different structures, breaking out from usual rhythm of patterns.
I reconstruct new shapes using elements I find around.

In a reality where to feel through distance and virtual is considered normal, between urban spaces I can find what is true and reachable, using photography as a research tool, to collect feelings, and sights of the human emotion.
