“The ‘San San Metroplex’ is an urban corridor that exists along the coast of California. It is based on an idea put forth by futurist Herman Kahn in his 1967 book The Year 2000. He speculated that the coastal area between San Diego and San Francisco would grow into one giant metropolis. This never happened. We have taken this veritable fiction and made a trilogy of films: The Floating Chain, Scenario in the Shade, and Mercury City.” Made up of these distinct chapters, the San San Trilogy takes the form of faux ethnographic cut up narratives illustrated through a series of props, environments, and pictures, and architectural models. The San San Trilogy was previously installed inside the Galata Greek Primary School within the framework of the 15th Istanbul Biennial in 2017, curated by artist duo Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, and titled “a good neighbor”.

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
