The relation of human emotion and internet technology with everyday devices like phone and PC is interrupting our natural daily lifestyle in positive and negative way. It is developing a lot of new logics and ethical values which we did not face before. We are passing a time which is more open and transparent than ever, but it is more confusing and paradoxical. There is many established values of social phenomena has changed there meaning with the impact of 4th IR, there is a new direction with pain and peace matriculate the contemporary time, the act of this untitled performance tried to realize the notion of changes, conflicts and harmony of our spiritual nature and 4th IR era, paper fly with newspaper was a symbol of information and technology.
