A CIRCULAR HISTORY-2014

"History breaks down in images not into stories.Walter Benjamin (Arcades Project)

In this work I tend to show that human’s perception of history can easily be manipulated. In this regard, I have collected some information about the past and the present and tried to give a different outlook into reality. I believe that human always likes rather to see his or her past moments and by doing so tries to build the history even if it does not exist at all. Although we might know that the media or politics can manipulate history, we unintentionally like to neglect it. Then the game begins and we accept the history and continue destroying it even in our mind. I think a circular interpretation however sees time and history as never moving forward, but always returning to the same points that always change their exact place. Then there is no chance for truth just round it.
