“The latter group separates the collective, and retools them into individual story-worlds that are nevertheless born from the same design imperative. Many of the human figures here are struggling with balance, as if blown by a strong wind, or standing on a slanted surface.

A striking image of a man, covering his face as he steps off a large black box without looking, has the words “şimdi loş” (now dim) printed below him. “We place ourselves in society’s constructs to protect us because we’re afraid of being different,” comments Güleryüz. “In his case, nothing is clear.”
