Project called "Impressions" is an artistic correspondence, a dialogue with my collegue, visual artists Hana Jesih. Using e-mail, we exchanged visual impressions, representing our experiences and perceptions of the culture, society, community and diversity of the cities we lived in during that time (Hana in Ljubljana, me in Istanbul). The result are collage illustrations of selected topics (Street, Coffee, Idol/Icon, Spring, Scarlet, Reflection, Dusk, Silence, Event, Autumn), bound together in a book. The illustrations in book Impressions are accompanied by the written impressions by Kaja Blazinšek, Andraž Boštjančič, Nejc Gazvoda, Matic Kocijančič and Eva Mahkovic. Book represents a dialogue between authors and also artistic exploration, an experiment in image and words. The project was supported by Ministry of culture in Slovenia.
Books and framed illustrations were exhibited between 12. 12. 2017–10. 1. 2018 in DobraVaga Gallery in Ljubljana.
