The continuous topic in this work-series is centrality embedded within landscape and its impact on the viewer. Centrality – as a synonym more closely associated with directionality, order and rigid geometry – is in every respect more prevalent in the built and human-made environment, as opposed to looseness and arbitrariness inherent in landscape. By applying centric arrangements to a natural pattern, a binary wherein the appeal of these representations lies is acquired and allegorical translations of subjective experiences are pursued to be materialized in an image. Cave-spaces are represented by crumpled paper imitating stone structures to create these spatial experiences. Eventually, and particularly, the gap and the hole resembling portals of caves are perceived by the impassive viewer.
