Fax Me Alone

Istanbul (Turkey), 2021, mixed media (Ink on paper and edited digitally).
“It represents modern-day isolation with a small touch of early days. We can never be disconnected from worldly interactions as technology evolves rapidly and my intention was to express the situation of not being able to fully isolate ourselves from society.”
“I used fax instead of other digital options to represent the heavy unwanted 'online' interaction. Faxing can go on and fill the room with the message papers and that's a reminder of how many much-unwanted messages we are getting but we are not realizing since they are not taking place in the real world.”
