The Wake Up! Memorial – Corona! Shut Down?
title of video : “Two Windows” – “İki Pencere (Turkish)”, 2020, 4:56
synopsis : my video project was done on pandemic days. All the images were taken from two windows of my house that saw the outside. Therefore, the name of the project is two windows. In the beginning, everything was going very smoothly. But as the process progressed, I started to feel my psychology deteriorated. Bo was also reflected in the images I took. We could not leave the house and prayers were read every night from the mosques. This was very scary. And the winds blowing through the pandemic put me in a dystopian state. I felt I was going to die. this video was a dystopian documentary going towards my end.
