“Imprisoned Freedom” Installation made by an Apple Laptop and Sabot Bullets, 2016
I love my country but I am so uncomfortable with the fact that Turkey is the top 2nd state (after China) on the list of countries with imprisoned journalists and opposing intellectuals. Dozens of writers, reporters, lecturers are now either in a jail or under a heavy investigation becouse of what they have written, becouse of what they have thought and said. Most of them barely get an impartial jurisdiction and many of them spend years in cells waiting for the court’s order. While my lovely country is pulled into an authoritarian regime day by day I simply wanted to create this piece. Rulers of the state may penalize the devices, try to suppress the free speech, latitudinarianism and legal opposition but they can not stop us thinking. They can not stop us loving our country & loving eachother. They can not stop us to keep our eyes open and question every single move. We will see better days.
