The story of the eye explains the construction of the object’s own reality and the fictional reality created in our minds.

It includes the idea of “be in existence”, which is the basis of everything, as well as the difficulty of being visible. While our mind is classifying this sensible, it reshapes its own reality. In this way, the decision of the eye constructs the decision of the mind and conscience by being questioned in the mind. In today’s communication environment, almost anything is shaped through the visual perception area. People exposed to visual shocking, where images are presented to the mind with a repressive effect in the type indicators, it is always ambiguous what he really sees and how he gives the meaning. Focus groups who desire the continuity of this ambiguity are watching everything from their observation towers like a big eye and are intervening at any desired time. While the fate of societies is fictionalized in the skyscrapers of imperialism by preparing scenarios, even the boundaries of the geography he will live are almost determined with the “decision of the eye”. In the present, while the boundaries of their way of life in the social sphere are tried to be determined, political discrimination, factionalizing of beliefs, conversion of authority, it is in question that the boundaries of the individuals’ liberty is being questioned. While authority constructs the design of a new individual and society, it wants to determine the shape by itself. The looking, seeing and understanding process, as the window opening to reality, can always deceived by manipulated images. This condition of being deceived turns into an addiction after a period, which cannot be controlled by the mind. Then, it starts to monitor each image fictionalized by the authority without questioning. Now, it is recognized that the individual is transferred into a world with the effect of what he is seeing. New opportunities that design masses have already been activated and are processing. The modern man was hit precisely from his pupil. With a hypnotic state, he has falling asleep between his own reality and images. This process is an ideal environment to encode and control him. The mass, pre-designed by secret codes that will take action in the appropriate condition is ready now and the intervention has started. However, the condition of being dependent of the eye is continuing to entangle the individual in the state of a sleepwalker. In fact, “the decision of the eye”, which means the amount determined through the estimation of the eye, measurement or rationing conducted with the eye, has passed the limits and its focus.

The way to exit from this situation is possible through the intervention with not only to the visible reality but also with perceiving minds. Now, it is necessary to wake up from the isolation of the virtual environment, to evolve and turn into the reality itself.

YAYGARA, with an understating of clamor, will and attitude that is questioning the authority, settling a score with the actual reality, reveals the issue of the real fact, which elevate the alternative characteristics of the individual and the diversity in social space, it will try to reveal the decision of the mind and conscience of contemporary artists.
