At the moment artist is a researcher at Izmir University of Economics as a part of the Transmaking project. The Trans-making project aims to establish a multilateral network of research and innovation staff active in the fields of placemaking/place-based art activities as a space to create alternative narratives for social, economic and democratic renewal. It will investigate and experiment with placemaking to contribute actively to the democratization/well-being of society, educating and empowering individuals and disadvantaged minorities through research and production in the connection between art and new technologies.
The objective is to strengthen research capacities, through exchange of knowledge and expertise between academic and non-academic partners from Europe and Third Countries in a shared research programme focused on: collecting, documenting / Exploring, experimenting / Performing / Designing. The final aim of Trans-making will be to establish long term collaboration among the partners in order to have a scientific and innovative worldwide community devoted to the research, (including art-based research), innovation, education activity in the matters concerned by the project.
As a part of her research stay in Izmir artist is proposing to do an artist talk, presentation of works in different media (video, performance, sound installation, mixed media) at K2, followed by discussion with audience.
