Sometimes wonders come out from boredom

just try!

Seems like having no wi-fi yesterday activated my productivity. I was looking for some activities that can do without using the internet and luckily I had my dear Photoshop. So, tried to juxtapose one of my earlier watercolor drawing and another handwriting which once occurred from boredom. That’s why sometimes you shouldn’t wait for an inspiration to come for you, but just TRY!
I believe that they are more inspired together. What do you think?thisisurlife5


“the HOUSE” final proposal

Since the final jury has come, we should be making our designs complete and ready to be presented. During the time since the second preliminary jury, many things changed in my project yet not as dramatic as before. The open circulation spaces were the most challenging part of my design when the climate and air conditions are concerned. In that, the semi enclosed spaces started to dominate my design and the approach to the second level. With this way i believe that I found a more effective way of placing my open spaces inside the enclosed ones.

Here are the drawings and sketches I produced for the final:



Red Light Installations – LA LINEA ROJA

I have found these awesome works while scrolling down on tumblr and fell in love with them at first sight and couldn’t stay away from sharing this inspiring artwork with you. These works called La Linea Roja,  are really stunning and have aesthetic features but beyond it they have a very strong characteristic indicating the correlation between nature and man made objects. The artist Nicholas Rivals make use of the geometrical features of the nature and integrate them with artificial geometrical light sources and eventually obtain impressive frames, differentiated spaces and perspectives.  For more information:

An Article About Photography and Underwater Photography Contest of 2016

Photography has always been a stunning and interesting subject which is at least once been spotlighted for some time of our lives, became a lifelong passion and addiction for most of us and professionalized by a few of us who can capture the world in a very distinctive and original way. As an amateur I strongly believe that what makes a fantastic photograph is not only about the equipments but more about seeing, more about vision and more about envision, call it as you wish.

As a beginner I was afraid to make changes with the shooting settings and play with some other basic controls like lightening and focusing etc. until I have heartily been stumped by the great effect of modifications in some basic settings. Rather than being stuck in the rules, make your own rules. Thats what makes you an admirable photographer!

What does photography mean to me? I guess apart from the ability of framing the world that you have conceived in your mind, it is about memories that you make last. It is about the people you have encountered and the places you have spent weeks on the way just to photograph and the cultures, languages and all that you haven’t realized about the world until that specific moment. All that you haven’t realized? This was all the voice that I have heard in my mind while I was looking for the submitted photographs for the Underwater Photography Contest. They are all one of a kind with their focus, different lightening conditions and lenses and shows us the underwater world from the visions of the photographer with unique abilities of seeing the world and photographing all those things that you haven’t realized.

Posterize vol.2

Here is the second of our posterize assignment but unlike the first one we were free to use an image(of our choice) or not and there were no restrictions about the color. Additionally, we were bounded to use the keywords of the text “pure creation of the mind”.(You can acquire more information about the text from my blog post called “Architecture and Mucic in common)  This time I was more conscious of what to do and what to consider.

I started with deciding on an image and to be honest it took my hours to find a suitable one. The image that I found after many of exertions contains many features in terms of relations of planes and lines which can make an harmonious relation with the layout of the keywords. If we consider any word as a plane, the sizes of those planes are getting larger as the planes at the background enlarge. I also created an opposite relation by using the numbers of the words. While the sizes are getting bigger, the number of the words is decreasing. Next, I tried to create a different plane on the differentiated area (the area created by the shadows on the stairs)  by changing the color white to a grey toned one.

For the final adding, I colored the title of my choice and placed it into the middle of the poster.
