Seth Czaplewski: Ceramic Streets, 2009-Present

I view my work as crossover media. I usually abstract forms, which are then situated outdoor. Once placed, each on-site piece is documented as the primary archival “art object”. In doing so, my hope is that each work will ask viewers to reexamine and reconsider how art functions in their surroundings. I install my work in public, leaving it subject to societal forces and the whim of passersby. They are left to provoke thought, be transformed, or remain.

Güliz Korkmaz Tirkeş: Flow Series, 2010-2013

My work in general may be considered as formed under the effect of an outer force. While this force may reveal itself as irregular linear textures on some forms, in others the body itself is bent or squeezed according to the strength and direction of this force. However, the force is not detrimental, but naturally welcomed by the forms.

The flow series also appear as a result of the forces applied by large volumes. The effects of these volumes on these works are embraced with soft and smooth movements and can be traced on the form with a natural flow. As in my other works this also may be seen as traces of an outer force, but these traces are outcomes that are formed within a natural flow and are affirmed by the form. The final form stands upright with its pure, content energy shaped by this feeling of embrace.
