artist's statement

Growing up in Istanbul and then moving to Silicon Valley I experienced first hand our diverse, fast-paced, and changing society. While I admire immutable works I focus on creating dynamic pieces that evolve much like our planet and ourselves. Thus, my creations can be adjusted, shifted, and even reconstructed to create not only new representations of the same work but also a novel experience for the viewer.
