Derya Vural

Calendar Project

"We determine and count time with the help of repetitive sky events. A day means the time between the rising of the sun twice. We name it according to the instruments we have. In 2008 I named time according to the rising of visual poetry. A visual poetry day means the time between two visual poems. All the things I have lived, seen, exposed, witnessed, thought and not thought have turned into a visual poem on a page of the calendar. "


Derya Vural was born in 1974 in Germany. She lives in Istanbul and works as a child psychologist and addiction consultant.
