In Turkey, military service is mandatory for all Turkish men when they turn 18. This duty involves extensive training. While the government spends a lot of money to maintain these bases, the need for them is questionable. Some of the duties involve guarding inanimate objects such as radiators or fridges, just to give the soldiers something to do. This series of collages shows the simple daily duties in a military base.

In the digital collages usually the surreal settings depict the impossible. Also I am projecting my inner world to the pages by using mythological, sexual and religious settings. My sources vary from my photographs to found images, simple drawings to current geometrical patterns.
