Defixed (2006)
with Orkan Telhan

Defixed is a web based game designed for Rejection Episodes. It is played by two people with Turkish and Flamish interfaces. Each player is asked first to choose four images that correspond to the words Margin, Sound, Habbit, Bond and Next for their culture and one for the other side. The goal of this play is to raise awareness to cultural and social cliches and help each side destabilize their own perception of the other.

Tr-act (2003)
"tr-act.info" is a dynamic site, aiming to screen the opposition among major ideologies (secular/religious) coexisting in Turkey, which are highly affected by the current condition of the worldwide conflict in eastern and western power structures. The website examines the fundamental on-line publications of each group every day and looks for combinations of recurring phrases (i.e. political party names, commander names...etc) in the daily news. According to the data it parses, it generates a screen where these recurrences are represented in quantity with a set of graphical items.
