Emily Prime

Emily Prime, metal and plexiglass, 40x20x10cm, 2015, Istanbul.

Emily Prime is a fictional character in the short movie World of Tomorrow by Don Hertzfeldt. Don Hertzfeldt’s visual language was the inspiration for the sculpture.

It was created considering the movements of sunlight: The shadow will be shifting in form through the day. By the nature of thin metal profile, we tend to perceive the shadow along with the object, as if they were one image. Again on this work, I aimed to play with the perception, shifting in 2D surface and 3D space.
