The artist desires the reflections of the original spaces to be opened by the relationship between art and architecture, which are reshaped with utopian approaches that transcend the usage limits of the space, and the audience to experience these reflections in the atmosphere they will feel. In his studies; By creating instant utopian spaces, it makes the viewer question only the current situation, worlds and feelings of the objects and individuals in different situations in these utopian spaces. The subject of the artist’s work; It is about the temporality of the moment, its disappearance, the existence of the atmosphere of that moment only at that moment and the fact that it cannot be repeated again.
