Placeholder series is a long-term visual study which is based on concepts like non-places, placelessness and transitional landscapes. Selections from the series were exhibited in my first solo show Placeholder which was curated by Melis Golar in Middle East Technical University in 2016. Different selections from the series was also exhibited in Mamut Art Project and BASE New Artist Platform group shows in 2017.  Lately the series was exhibited by Subjectively Objective in Detroit.
There are at least two experienced geographies: there is a geography of places, characterized by variety and meaning, and there is a placeless geography, a labyrinth of endless similarities.*

*Place and Placelessness by Edward Relph (1976)
Placelessness reaches back into the deepest levels of place, cutting roots, eroding symbols, replacing diversity with uniformity an experiential order with conceptual order.*
