Sweet and Sour Turkey _ turkish artifacts

Turks have lived and inhabited caves, carved out of the local volcanic rock for centuries today they are major tourist attractions that supprt the local economies.

Each cultural artfact is created in response to a small narrative that I imagined about each tourist destination and made from local materials. Each sculpture is a personal respnse to my experiences as a tourist, a voyeur and other.

Travel today is a global and local experience, where cultures are redefined by the tourist, photographs, memories and the artifacts we love to collect, take hope and place on a shelf. Video and photography supply supporting evidence and dialogue about each object and its indivdual cultural narrative.
