Dasvant is a noncommercial showcase for us to exhibit the work we have shot/done/distorted. It's our turn to get behind the camera. Sorry for the the glitches and mistakes.


Dasvant is derived from the word das[u]vant in Hittite language. It means blind. We have chosen it as a title for its obvious irony and as a small tribute to the cultural heritage of the land on which we live.

The anthropometric and numeric scale of proportions, named "Modulor" by the architect Le Corbusier, is an effort to achieve a universal standard. However, standardization is always problematic as it leaves out anything that is perceived as a deviation. As Jung said, we can calculate the average weight of all the pebbles on a beach and find the specific number 145 grams, whereas in fact there may not be even a single stone on that beach weighing exactly that.

This short stop motion animation is an effort to pit standard and nonstandard (real or imaginary) against each other.

    bir taraftan insanın düzeni sağlamak üzere herşeyi biribirine benzetme, aynılaştırma çabası, öte yandan rutini bozma, düzenli olanı reddetme içgüdüsü... merak ediyorum. Hamurun içindeki ruh kimindi? çok beğendim. Sevgi ve saygılarımla. Erdal Yılmaz 13/07/2011
