While the new digital technology revolutionizes every aspect of the society, it leads us into a world which is often defined as a “Post - ” society: Post - Historic, Post - Religious, Post - Civilized, Post - Industrial, Post - Capitalist and Post - Modern.
Some claim that we are experiencing a new society, variedly known as an information society, knowledge society, cyber & virtual society; with extreme emphasis on constant, rapid and invisible change. This is the society where people are beyond the hold of the past, worried about the present and terrified about the future.
My works are based on the analysis of this random transformation, which the virtual world constantly goes through, referring to the “Age of the New Digital World”. But the new age here refers not to the new era, but literally to the “Age” of the data itself.
After extensive research and discussions with numerous scientists and engineers, these works were created while working on codes at the binary level, behind the façade of the image interface itself.
The information stored in the magnetic and optical devices was thus manipulated, sometimes changing just one bit. This change – mostly random, destroyed and reconstructed, broke & distorted the data imitating the unpredictability and change that it would undergo – with disaster or age.
