That morning, when I was on my way to Dolapdere, I was feeling different. Perhaps you know those days where everything goes well; deep down I knew that one of those days was coming up.
When the car stopped at the door of the Pilevneli Gallery, even though there was no sign for the place I understood where I had arrived. I pulled the door slowly and stepped into this brand new, modern and pleasing art gallery. First, I read the script on the wall which is about Refik Anadol's exhibition "Eriyen Hatıralar (Melting Memories)".
"Eriyen Hatıralar brings new initiatives to the possibilities of representation at the junction where advanced technology and contemporary art intersects. Interdisciplinary works of art in which brain waves that appear during the access to memories are translated into data collections draw audiences to Anadol's creative vision regarding human memory."
For his exhibition which consists of data paintings and sculptures as well as light projections, Anadol has measured the rate of changes in the neural oscillations by conducting experiments in a laboratory in San Fransisco. These data sets form the pillars of the multidimensional images in the exhibition. 
In other words, when we get lost among the works of Anadol, perhaps we follow the rhythm of our own minds… At least my personal memory melted in that direction. When I was able to stay in the moment, I watched a serene work of art. It was pleasurable. I was lost in it and then I came back to the real world. 
You can visit the exhibition until this Saturday; the 17th of March.
