2022 | Elmas Deniz | Elmas Deniz

The series of texts we launched in April 2022 at where artists interpret weather reports continues with an interview with the artist Elmas Deniz.

We both continue to think about the possibility of trying to describe together—adopting the sharing, transmitting, passing on as a method—, which lies at the core of the act of reporting.
