Burhan Dogancay's commemoration at the Met

Thank you very much for The Metropolitan Museum of Art to hold a commemoration for Burhan Dogancay.  Eventhough I was familiar with Dogancay's work, an extensive presentation such as this put it in to a much better perspective for all of us. 

I was also pleasantly surprised to see one of  my artworks on screen during the presentation, perhaps as a younger artist who also works in public space !

back from Canada !

with some good memories and site shots!

Nano technology !

I saw a user comment on a photo of one of my last pieces "Fragmenta"as he was referring to nano technology. "Build the visible from invisible !"
I thought this was a nice metaphor for what that piece intended...
