HES (abbreviation of Hydroelectric Power Plant in Turkish)
Due to our destruction until now, the technology that we have advanced rapidly and our eyes which have been easily blinded with the convenience brought by these technologies, did not see the massacres that we actually know but cannot accept being a part of. This knowledge that we acquired through trials, is enough to see the consequences of the equation that we are in. If we do not question our methods in an expedited manner, this world will turn into a place where no living thing can be accommodated. This will be our own demise rather than the world itself, given the cycle of life. In fact, the world will restart after thousands of years from the beginning but this time it will be free from the deadly virus or us.
The first part of the job is a tree, every branch of which was cut down by human hand. The channels that carry water to life, are cut off until there is one last remaining. It carries only a single bud on it. That is the only symptom of life.
Light is another completely transformed tree. It has been cut off from its body where water flows strongest and it has been transformed. Now it serves its own killer. The killer gives us, the humanity energy. Energy equals money and technology… Technology and processed information brings us awareness. The projection of generated energy reveals us the big picture, the concrete reflection of the nature that is ready to give birth despite everything and that the bud points to the end. Nevertheless the next target…
This world perception which has no other focus than money and power and is stuck at a dead end, needs a mental revolution. Otherwise, the cycle described above will continue until it is too late…
