'Suspense' in an Arnoldian study that reflects on the ‘arbitrary’ criminal justice system in Turkey and the inconceivable practices experienced lately, specifically the cases concerning the Gezi Park Protests, 2013.

'#HaHaHa' is a video I made in response to the ongoing and never-ending discourses of the male politicians, and men in general, claiming the laugh of the women immoral, corrupt, inappropriate, wanton, depraved, vicious, vice, mean, wicked, loose, dirty, naughty, fescennine, nasty, disgraceful, shameful, sinful, evil... It is a way to be articulated to the 2018 March 8th Demonstrations in Turkey, and their slogan #8MarttaFeministİsyan (#FeministRevoltOnMarch8th).
