    In this thesis, I reflect on human behavior and humanities cut-off from nature. I contemplate on human made systems such as language and how they are used to shed light to anomalies which we refer to as monstrosity. The ambiguity of human nature makes this division impossible and I shed light to that by presenting ideas of the quantum physical and philosophical term Agential Realism by Karen Barad and Simon De Beauvoir’s writings on the body as a situation. I reflect on the body of art as a situation and how the artwork is an entangled situation intertwined with its maker, context and viewer and then I represent these ideas through my thesis project Born with regard to life, existing essentially with regard to the good life (2017) in which I attempt to mediate these contemplations through visual language, a two-channeled video work.
