Ancient Toys, Short Affirmations Installation, 2022

Ancient Toys, Short Affirmations is a multimedia installation focusing on the narrative possibilities of plastic, tells of an alternative reality where plastic toys are one of the few survivors among reptilians, plants and bacteria. On the low energy devices aphorisms and affirmations appear which may belong to an earlier time. They deal with toxicity, plastic, neurodiversity, inclusion among others. Using the genre of both short affirmations and aphorisms, Burçak engages with the forced positivity/optimism imposed by Western ideology in dealing with the injustices of today.
