This collection is a boundary between my early works, which were adapted, and my later works, in which I have looked at retrospective motifs with a broader view, and I refer to it as the self-appropriation of tradition. The basis of this set is Islamic geometry. The Middling Ring (picture 3) of this collection refers to the entanglement of motifs that we have seen differently in the decorations of Islamic art. In designing these motifs, I intended to dismantle the order of Islamic geometry in addition to redefining it. In a way that this geometry does not belong anywhere. The Fall Pendant (Photo 4) refers to the tradition of mirroring in Iranian art. In the upper section of this section, the mirror pendant has collapsed and has become a narrow, tangled line.
