:: PATTERNS OF UNINTENTIONAL COORDINATION ::

Humans became the most effective beings in the ecosystem, they act towards construction, consumption, demolition and reconstruction.This human centered behavior, resulted in calling the current geological age The Anthropocene, where human activity is most dominant in the environment. But creatures that bring together our ecosystem, bound a unified energy. Everything is connected to something, and all the species on the planet are part of the same communion. We are unified and borders and boundaries don’t matter, we have the borders as long as we build them. Borders are just another abstraction of Anthropocene interventions.

Since 2011 the civil war in Syria has resulted in 465,000 deaths and displacement among almost half of the pre-war population.Northern Bald Ibis birds, an endangered species, are not allowed to migrate from Turkey to Ethiopia due to the conflict since 2014, because their routes pass by Syria. They have been kept and protected at Bald Ibis Breeding Center, in a cage at Birecik/ Sanliurfa, Turkey.

Patterns of Unintentional Coordination is a one channel video, filmed in Sanliurfa, Turkey, on 21 February 2017, the freedom day of the birds for nesting purpose in natural areas. Overlapping patterns, raises questions on abstraction of migration with cross discipline research by creating a spatial storytelling experience, in order to open up conversations about interconnectivity.
