 (giriş) (introduction)

Hayat başkalarının yarattıklarını yeterli bularak yaşayacak kadar sıkıcı değil,

Life is not ordinary enough to settle with what others have created.

 

(gelişim) (ongoing)

Bugün, yarın, yaratılmışın büyük mucizesinden esinlenerek bana görünebilen bilinmezleri, onun estetiği içinde kendi algılarımla bilinebilir hale getirebilme.

To create awareness for the unknown what is shown to me, with the inspiration derived from the great miracle of the created; today, tomorrow and always within his aesthetics.

 

(sonuç) (in short)

Yaradılış sürecinde kendimi tatmin edebilmek.

To satisfy myself throughout the process of the creation.
