This is a project inspired by the abandoned walls of the houses, settlements. This settlement is in Ayazaga in Istanbul where one of the districts for urban transformations project in Istanbul/Turkey.

THis project, I used wall as a canvas and I tried to listen the story of walls and pursued of the traces of wall.

Pursuing the Traces is based on spontaneous drawings and paintings on wall of former habitants place. Photos shows the place and some details from mural painting. And photos also shows what is lying there after all that houses demolished.
