Tanrı’ya dair hiçbir imaj yaratmayın. Tanrı’nın verdiği imgeleri kabul edin. Onlar her yerde, her şeydedir. Tanrı Değiştir – Tohumdan Ağaca, ağactan ormana; Yağmurdan nehire, nehirden denize…
Create no images of God. Accept the images that God has provided. They are everywhere, in everything. God is Change— Seed to tree, tree to forest; Rain to river, river to sea…

– Octavia E. Butler

The three paintings, Imja, Lumding and Thulagi are named after the glacial lake in Nepal which are potentially dangerous. The climate change is making huge changes in the Himalayan region of Nepal. The archival satellite image from the 60s and the study done in 2009 shows, expansion of many glacial lake in the region,  and 20 are listed as potentially dangerous (including the three above) by ICIMOD, International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development. The paintings uses satellite photographic image as a resource and the red line indicates the expansion of the lakes in time. These works explore the theme of climate change and its  impact on Himalayan communities, that played no part in initiating it.
