Poster | Being
Date: March 2018
I represented the experience of being that is exclusively human—Dasein—through the phrase “Being here, being there, simultaneously.” My own existence is characterized by remoteness: I live in Vancouver, yet a part of me still lives in Istanbul. To make this remoteness disappear and authentically dwell in this life-world, I used both English and Turkish in this project and made the lines emanate from two different locations symbolizing Vancouver and Istanbul. I also created two posters and placed them on different sides of the wall to emphasize my existential spatiality, for “I” am always-already situated between them.
