ISEA: The work ‘ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT’ belongs to Nils Völker. It looks really attractive first so you get close but than attraction goes and the reasoning process of mind starts. Suddenly you start to think how can it be possible, what is underlaying system. Here is a bit more info about this work of Nils. Interactive installation made from garbage bags and fans. One Hundred and Eight is an interactive wall-mounted Installation mainly made out of ordinary garbage bags. Controlled by a microcontroller each of them is selectively inflated and deflated in turn by two cooling fans. Although each plastic bag is mounted stationary the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively and moving creatures which waft slowly around like a shoal. But as soon a viewer comes close it instantly reacts by drawing back and tentatively following the movements of the observer. As long as he remains in a certain area in front of the installation it dynamically reacts to the viewers motion. As soon it does no longer detect someone close it reorganizes itself after a while and gently restarts wobbling around. So i can say that the main reason that i have a great interaction with this work is i not only attracted with design, visuals, and lights; i also attracted from the system. ‘When design follows function..’
Project: Daha kafamda tam anlamı ile netleşmemekle birlikte, tool olarak projenin herhangi bi yerinde camerayı kullanacağım ve bir şekilde video kullanımı olacağını kesinleştirmiş bulunuyorum. Ayrıca mutlaka projem ne olursa olsun bir websitesi ile bağlantısı olucak. Web sitesi yapmayı öğrenmeyi fazlası ile istediğimden, projem ne olursa olsun olucak kendileri. Proje mutlaka gerçek hayata uygulanabilir, sergilenebilir bir şey olucak. Şimdilik cidden bu kadar. 1hafta içerisinde daha da netleştireceğim.
About me: Firstly i can say that i am really into photography and video like i have stated before into class. I have my little studio at home. I made an internship at DDB&Co and understand that i am not a ‘graphic design’ person. I had good achievements while i was doing internship and most of my works were chosen by clients but even i could do it; that does not mean i want it. I want to be more camera person. I want to create bigger productions. Paper do not have enough space for me to create something i want, i need bigger space, bigger productions. So that i am in love with camera. Apart from my fair with camera and art, i am also in love with music too. Since 7 year old i have been playing piano. Than in 5th grade i entered Istanbul university conservatory exams and achieved to go in and while i have developed my piano skills i had also learned new instrument; cello. So cello become my new lover.
