For the Poster Monday spot of the day we have a poster designed by Murat Ertürk from Turkey. Murat is a visual communication designer and educator who lives and works in Sakarya. He received his bachelor and master degree at Uludag University, doctor of fine arts at Hacettepe University in Turkey, and he was awarded six times, four of which were international. His works were exhibited in different art or design organizations such as Moscow International Biennale of Graphic Design Golden Bee, Trnava Poster Triennial and the International Warsaw Poster Biennale. His posters were also taken to the archives of Wilanów Poster Museum in Poland. Murat is currently an assistant professor at Sakarya University, Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture.
“We’re constantly being watched for security reasons. Actually, we are “test objects” with the numbered identification in security and freedom debates. Mobile applications know when we wake up, and can count where and how many steps we take in a day. Mobile phones know our faces. This is a reality we encounter and live every day and I like to show reality in direct and precise form” says Murat.
“I think the important thing is “to do”. Thus I see this poster as a product of my professional responsibility. When designing the poster with such thoughts, the concept that I imagined is between the vector and the photographic reality. I think this image is like a tree because many cameras show a lot of inspection, as a small detail, I designed this poster in 2014 and in the movie “The Circle” in 2017, tiny cameras on the trees were used to inspect people” according to Murat. The poster “Inspection Tree” is also a finalist of Trnava Poster Triennial (endorsed by ico-D) in 2015.
