If i were as i am, 2021
İstanbul Aydın University 'Something Happened Everything Changed'
International Student Biennial Online Exhibition Selected Work
We were forced to cope with emotions and situations such as depression, anxiety, addiction, feeling worthless and lack of self-confidence, mostly caused by isolation and routine,more determinedly than before the pandemic. With the weariness of this struggle and the growing sense of loneliness, the moments when our animal instincts took control have increasingly made us wild.
In addition, with the establishment of an online lifestyle, we had to maintain our existence as pixel-based, two-dimensional internet data. In these versions, we started to showcase our persona as a good person by suppressing our wild sides. While this existential dilemma gradually increases the difference between social and individual life, it calls into question the reality of already abstract social relations and creates ironic moments.
