"Earth" is an artwork that represents a new geological era in which humans are in charge. The arrangement made of soil powder placed in a transparent box is symbolic of humanity's impact on the world. Participants can interact with the work by shaping the soil powder and becoming part of the change. The work highlights the change and destruction of the earth's memories embodied in the rocks. The artwork, produced with the contribution of Kale Design and Art Center (KTSM), encourages viewers to think about the impact they leave on the world. As a supporter of ideas for a sustainable world, KTSM invites viewers to be inspired and aware of responsible production and consumption through art and communication.
The dining table represents socialization and communication in a culture. The gathering of people around the table is an important place to strengthen relationships beyond just satisfying the need for food. The table is where happy moments or sorrows are shared and the table setting has evolved and changed according to the culture, from traditional to modern.Eating alone at a table is unsatisfying and takes away the enjoyment of the meal. After satisfying their hunger, people need to satisfy their socializing needs by exchanging information and emotions. Conversation is the second important aspect of the table. A study describing the communication at a four-person core family table uses letters instead of food. A daily table setting including plates, spoons, forks, and knives is used. The ideal table, where everyone has equal positions, portions, and communication, represents the ideal core family.
The capacity of human memory is quite high. It saves many memories and erases the unimportant ones over time. But the memories that make us feel emotionally strong are not erased. These memories can sometimes be memories that we never want to forget, and sometimes we want to erase from our minds.
The tapes invented to record things represent memory in this work.
8 March, International Women's Day, proposed and accepted by Clara Zetkin in 1910; It is dedicated to the memory of 129 female workers who went on strike due to poor working conditions in New York, USA in 1857 and were burned to death as a result of the counterattack. Although women have made progress in their rights after many years, they still struggle with inequality. From this point of view, in my work, it is used to represent the producing hands of the working woman and it tells that the struggle continues with the endless mirror image.
Our eyes are perhaps our only organ that still contains a soul. The eye is the one that performs the miracle of opening the soul to the soulless, the happy realm of things, and their god the sun. But what if we were dragged into a white disaster where the condition spread from one sick person to the next like an epidemic, where people would become blind because they looked at a blind person, and we were forced to swim in a sea of milk…
José Saramago’s novel “Blindness” was an instrumental influence for artist Seda Boy in her approach to blindness through a different perspective in her exhibition “White Blindness”. In his novel, José Saramago uses blindness as a metaphor for both personal misfortune and social disaster. He wrote a fascinating story of not only social decay, but of the emergence of a new ethic in the most desperate of moments.
