ART WORKS

Here you can find the art projects that I created throughout my artistic career. My portfolio consists of different techniques such as video, installation, photography, painting, drawing, etching/printing and digital manipulations.

I never stick with a certain technique, because in my perspective,

"the idea" always chooses "the technique". 
 

- THIRSTY -
Video loop (18 sec.)
2022
"Thirsty" is an experimental video art project that I combine a real footage of mine and text to image-based style transfer & artificial intelligence-based rotoscope animation techniques.

The project combines the "experience of being human" that I had at the time it was produced, with Nietzsche's concept of "eternal return"; which he mentions; 
"You will have to live this life that you have lived and are living, again and countless times; There will be nothing new in you: every pain, every joy, every thought and every breath in your life, everything indescribable, small or big, will return to you, one after the other, in the same order - even that twilight creeping through the trees and that spider, right now and even myself. The eternal hourglass of existence will be turned upside down again and again, with you with a speck of dust inside."

#ThisArtDoesNotExist

#ThisArtDoesNotExist is a machine hallucination / latent spacewalk video, generated by the dataset that trained in StyleGAN with 350 images of ART. This experimental video art project is mainly focused to create an interrogation area about the fundamentals of artistic authorship and computational creations.
 

- HUG PROJECT - 
Two-channel rotoscoping animation
2017

“They say you can’t capture the image of freedom to a video tape, but you can...”

Beginning with these words by Peter Jennings, the video is about the struggle for democracy, freedom and unity between Eastern Europe and the Soviets in the late 80s, and the events that eventually lead to the collapse of the Berlin Wall.
In the 3 minutes and 37 seconds of the video broadcast on the ABC channel, a leader is seen coming to the stage with a speech in his hand to address the enthusiastic public. He gives up speaking in the face of public enthusiasm, slips the text into his pocket and decided to hug
 all the righteous.

T
his sequence of the video ends with the words
“at the end of the 1980s so many walls were coming down”.
The 8-second animated video named “Hug” was created
 by reproducing all the frames of this sequence using the rotoscope method.

- COVER DESIGN FOR SOUNDEST MAGAZINE -

In this cover design that I made especially for SOUNDEST Magazine,  I use google translates' vocalization and an artificial experiment called "Seeing Music" altogether. It means, a machine vocalized "Soundest" and the other one creates an artificial image based on that sound. I'm the one who brings this process and finalizes it. So, the question is "who is the creator of this image?"

ONE DREAM PER DAY FOR THE FIRST WEEK OF JUNE

2020


In these series of images, I use style based generative adversarial networks. The source image was my original hand-drawing image based on a novel corona virus model. I've generated seven images, one image/style per day.
