ABOUT ME – HAKKIMDA

Welcome to my website!

This website, in the vast world of internet, is a little place of mine in which I freely share my ideas on various topics that I find interesting and worth sharing. At the moment, topics are not focused; they range from photography to free sources of internet. However, it is a reflection of my own background, so it makes sense in itself. I’ve studied philosophy at Boğaziçi University and did my master in Sociology. Meanwhile, I followed my interest in media arts and worked as a freelancer in media production including directing and taking photos for various occasions. I am mostly active on Instagram so you can catch up with me there. I walk around the streets of Istanbul, visit museums, take photos and share them.

There are lots to write on this website; important notes on the books I read, the historical background of the places I visit, inspirational works of artists, truly great sources on the internet that you can utilize from etc. I hope to create time for all of it. Meanwhile, feel free to share your thoughts, criticisms or suggestions under the articles I post..

İste Benim Zeki Muren! (Here I am, Zeki Muren) A Rare Look To The Life of Iconic Singer

zeki_muren

This year on January, I had the chance to visit the exhibition “İşte Benim Zekim Müren” (Here I am, Zeki Muren) which was held in the Yapı Kredi Cultural Center. I luckily had my camera with me, so I took a couple of photos some of which I share in this post. I was already amazed by this legendary singer’s voice, kindness and neat diction (as well as the rest of the country, he was called the sun of art) but this profound visualization of his life deepened my adoration for him.

I remember that Halil Karaduman, who was the world’s leading “kanuni”, mentioned him as one of the smartest people he ever met in an interview I made with him. He said, “İsmi gibi zeki bir insandı,” i.e., he was smart as the meaning of his name suggests. (Zeki means smart in English). If you are interested you can read the whole interview here.

The exhibition was entitled after one of his biggest hits from the 1980s, “İşte Benim Zekim Müren” (That’s Me, Zeki Müren) Lyrics itself tell a lot about the marked he left in the hearts of millions:

The one who spreads emotions/feelings to songs
the one who faces/survives skein
the one who enters in suffering heart
That is me, Zeki Müren

Fransız okulunda, hoca yok, kitaplar yok, yurt, gym, laboratuvar ya da öğrenci merkezleri de yok. Hatta okul ücreti de. École 42 mühendislik alanında eğitim veren belki de en ilginç okullardan biri.

Projenin kurucusu Xavier Niel, Fransa’nın en başarılı teknoloji girişimcilerinden. Niel, daha önce öğretmenleri eğitmek için kullanılan bir hükümet binasında 2-3 yıllık yoğun bir program ile başarılı yazılım mühendisleri yetiştirmeyi hedefliyor. Projeye 70 milyon Euro bağış ile başlanmış. Kendisi de bilyoner olan Niel’in projeden herhangi bir kazanç elde etme hedefi yok.

“Bildiğim bir şey var o da nasıl yazılım geliştirileceği,” diyor Niel. “Oldukça çok para kazandım ve şimdi ülkeme bir şeyler katmak istiyorum.”
