These works are uniting the government buildings and the materials of government bureaucracy. Transforming the characteristics of government institutions from a building to a logbook. By cutting the gaps of negativity of those buildings on the materials, the art works try to show the gaze of the “government” on us.

The work monumentalizes the memory of playgrounds which
embodies the knowledge of coexistence culture by recording
them using the frottage method. Considering the fact that
playgrounds are the most effective public spaces where the
dynamics of coexistence function without trouble, textures of
playgrounds such as the floors, walls and toys in multicultural
neighborhoods such as Yeldegirmeni, Balat etc in Istanbul are
scanned on a one-piece, long paper. Then this paper is folded and rotated 360 degrees to develop an attachment to its surrounding. With all their memory, dynamics and generosity, playgrounds give in their space to a monument on this paper. Through this monument, the secret knowledge of our survival becomes unvarnished.
