The Fertile Crescent
The shared history of a shared geography brought us together in Digigether Project.
The video installation called ‘The Fertile Crescent’ questions what shared civilizations offered and still offer to us on the territories with ever-changing borders, and focuses on the conflicts between matriarchal and patriarchal periods, and on cultural heritage of the territory. The cycle depicts the material evolution of the goddess figure, and investigates the meaning of power today.

Social diversity is not easy to achieve, however, after decades of researches, social scientists, psychologists, economists, sociologists and population experts demonstrated that heterogeneous groups in terms of race, sex, and gender are more skillful and creative than homogenous ones. Variety is not limited to the information shared by individuals form various social pasts.
The interactions among various members of heterogeneous groups may enrich their participation in developing any others’ ideas, and promote them to contribute.

''We search for the culture beyond the life of the society, as we seek for the soul beyond the life of any human being. This project focuses on the transformation of culture by the means of mass communication, and questions the making of technological culture.
It presents the instance when a cultural image encounters technology.''

Emphatic is a human-based typology modelled by data- visualization of human motion. The typology we produce
will emphasize the aspect of coexistence in the concept empathy. Technically, data gathered by motion capture and Cinema 4D technologies translate a dance routine into an alphabet, which will be accessible on the internet.

Quintessentially, human beings experience their emotions in various contexts in dif-ferent processes. These emotional states convey any individual in its life cycle from the present to the future, as well as from the past to the present. These movements evoke memories, however, in some cases
facts and fictions may well intermingle. We all accumulate our memories, and our emotions.

As a painter and illustrator, I have always been suspicious about t nd new techniques in harmony.
This video includes a collage of classical illustrations and 3D techniques, and emphasizes the coexistence of different methods.

The idea of singularity comes with an immediate question on the responsibility of our pre-sent role, in the past, in the present and in the future. Is human individual a sufficient be-ing, or is it an excess?
