Trial for Visual interpretations of turkish coffees readings and beyond , oil on canvas, istanbul 2014.

Trial for Visual interpretations of turkish coffees readings and beyond is a part of the series of Settlement. I think turkish coffee reading is way of exploring settlement. Its always dealing with love, settlement, place, moving, house, money,etc.

Tasseography or tasseomancy is a fortune telling method is interpreting patterns in coffee grounds and is especially common in the Middle Eastern tradition. It has strong connection between the symbols and the individuals whose cup is read. my personal interest in superstition draw me to explore turkish coffee ritual and find a link between personal stories and the object, symbols in a way of representation or telling stories.
