Perception Mechanism, 2015

Wood, Photo Print, Dimensions Variable, Duration Variable


Los Angeles | 2015

The work links the basic Physics principle of Perspective and Depth Perception to the social reality in Turkey. The image is that of Ozge Unlutezcan, who was judged for having expressed her thoughts on social media during the Gezi Park protests in 2013. Rendering her autobiographical notion, The Perception Mechanism invites the viewer to take a position where both halves can be perceived as one, and offers a physical separation but perceptual integration of her image. That one half of the image is pixelated refers to the applications of censorship in the artist`s home country. Even when the viewer tries to see Özge’s full image, the truth is still half-hidden.
