OTHER INFORMATION As far as nature, not only in terms of content but also medium, is concerned, natural resources are gathered as inspirations and memories, traces of nature are left on the work while exploring different ways of engaging them directly as raw materials for art making; retaining transcultural memories in the work. Refinement is constituted through various means of transforming natural materials, which reminds us of the absence of materials and the texture of time and space.

Consciousness disappears through the repetition of simple elements or steps. Sensation and subtlety are gradually shown on the piece of art while transient moments with nature are captured, intertwining between borders of freedom and control, transformation and preservation, memory and oblivion.
