About the space connecting the public place and the personal place. Also, about the difference between the body in the public space and un · public space.

Naturally, human beings behave differently in public and in private area. How could such differences change their behavior? Furthermore, how would other childhood environment, culture or country affect or not affect human beings? While unraveling the form- substance relation, we have observed that what is regarded as pure or the common sense and the absurdity, indecency or filthiness may conflict at one end however join on the other. In spite of the difference of countries or cultures,we believe that we can share the same accurate view as a human being by venturing into those fields of uncertainty.

An individual exists in both public and private places. Through out the history, occasionally the individual had made mistakes in public places. Inflation of individualism has lead to wars and terrors. And time seems to reflect those individuals. In “Public vs. Un-public”, our purpose is to re-consider the existence of an individual as what comes from a difference caused by spaces, and place the theme in a trial to develop it into communication among human beings, cultural exchanges and ultimately world peace. Wittgenstein (philosopher) set it as the final aim of his study “to see the world correctly without a faintest flaw.”
