CYCL is a word that points to CYCLE. It refers to the starting and ending points of the processes we are dealing with and it correlates this with a natural phenomenon; CYCLONE. Also it points out the cycles that revealed by the similarities between MACRO and MICRO scales in the universe.

This project creates a sensorial simulation of circularity: a system that always works, stops and restarts. It cannonades the audience with information and perception for a short time and cuts off abruptly. It confronts the audience with NOTHING through this contrast and represents an experience based on MOMENT and NULLITY and only aimed at feelings, while we are eluding the chaos of complexity and information in the world that we live socially.

Simultaneously, the synchronised sound design is activated as well. Through the use of fans, the sense of touch ¬¬providing an air current within in the area.
