My animation #flow received the special jury award from International Canlandiranlar Film Festival. Thank you very much to @mertkocaday for the amazing music. Here is an excerpt from the movie 🧠 Flow is inspired by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche’s book The Birth of Tragedy, and specifically his ideas on Apollo and Dionysus. Apollo is the God of plastic arts, reason and rationality. Dionysus is the god of the chaos, emotions, instincts and music. Nietzsche establishes his aesthetics theories from the archetypes of Apollo and Dionysus and offers, specifically that art is based on polarities and tensions rather than delight and imitation. His polarities are those of order (Apollo) and passion (Dionysus). The main character in this animation is a sculptress who travels through Apollonian and Dionysian states. #animation #illustration #animatedgif #gif #gifs #animations #illustrations #giphy #canlandiranlar #canlandıranlarfestivali #animasyon #animasyonfilm #illüstrasyon #illustrasyon #nietzsche #birthoftragedy #apollo #dionysus
“White Spot” is a set of 3 artworks about the Turkish government’s repressive regime led by a self-fashioned "autocrat" president. The Turkish government is trying to frighten, dishearten, and disempower anyone who advocates fundamental human rights. In the current political climate, all opposition from educational institutions, intellectuals, and the media are punished, and the growing violence and instability favored.
With these three artworks, I am trying to depict the individual's suffering from the oppressive regime; the transformation of their ideas, loss of their motivation, and their deteriorating mental health.
Thanks to the #lentucilarprint technology, the viewers can observe this transformation step by step as they walk by the artwork. If they walk to their right; everything goes wrong, if they walk to the left; everything goes back to normal. #whitespot #contemporaryistanbul #ci18 #illustration #lasercutting #lasercut
