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..

Fikirlerinizden çığır açacak bir devrim neşv-ü nema bulabilir, gelecek kuşaklara ilham kapılarını açabilirsiniz.

Akademide felsefeyle uğraşmak ise bu idealize edilmiş tablodan biraz daha farklı; muhtemelen ailenizden ve arkadaşlarınızdan uzakta bir kampüstesiniz, baş ağrıtan bölüm politikaları ile uğraşırken makale yayınlayabilmek için de devamlı çalışıyorsunuz. Peki felsefe mezunuysanız ve akademide ilerlemek size göre değilse hangi sektöre yönelirdiniz?

One of the unique characteristics of Kenan Özten’s signature kanuns is that every piece is made by him and his apprentice Zafer Kibar. 

November 02, 2008, Sunday/ Published at Today’s Daily News

The kanun, an oriental zither, is a music instrument unique to Turkish music and is painstakingly difficult to manufacture as it requires long labor and great expertise, says a veteran kanun-maker. Kenan Özten, one of the finest kanun-makers alive, explained to Sunday’s Zaman that “while the kanun has been a traditional musical instrument in Turkey, we have started to see a great interest lately especially among our youth.”What makes the kanun unique, he said, is the instrument is strung with nylon strings in contrast to a similar instrument that is played in the Alpine countries. Interestingly the bridge does not stand on a wooden soundboard but on a parchment (drum skin), similar to the banjo. This results in a characteristic tone.
