With this project, my aim is to convey human emotions with the metaphorical meanings of the word of "eğreti", which is used to describe things in  not well established, and actually reclassify the eğreti as a feeling.  We can feel the eğretiness of ourselves, we can feel the eğretiness of the people, and we can even feel the eğretiness of cities especially if we live in a distorted metropolis like Istanbul. We are exposed to the eğreti, we hide the eğreti, we hide them, we disgrace them. In some of my sculptures I showed where we hid this eğreti, in some I exhibited the eğreti ones and in others I just conveyed the eğreti feelings of the events I was exposed to.
