“I am seeking what Roland Barthes refers to as ‘punctum,’ or that element which relies upon our personal memories and experiences to fill in the gaps. This does not mean that I want the viewer to literally imagine a certain scene, but, in a more abstract way, I want them to be held in a state of suspense. I want them to remain open for associations with their own bank of memories and mental images.”

— Hatice Guleryuz
