Show RCA work

Major project:

In my graduation work, I focus on individuality in countless objects with concern for modern society, where we are surrounded by huge amounts of information. Sometimes, I cannot stop myself from understanding social events automatically as just symbolic meanings although these events have their own history and situation. In order to work against this huge amount of information, I attempted to simplify these concerns and remind myself of the importance of individuality.

I printed or stamped numbers of specific times on paintings and bricks and erased or broke them at that specific time. It can be said that these marks of paints and cracks in the bricks are the result of what I recognised in each object, with each time as they are individual objects.


  • I am engaging in artworks about human perception with philosophical aspects while exploring material practices.
