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.

In 2000, Hans Haacke did a "Der Bevölkerung" job on a court of the Reichstag in the German Parliament Building. This letter, meaning "the people", expressed an objection to the article "Dem Deutschen Volke" on the front of the same building. Everybody who lives in Germany where the people mean. Der Bevölkerung settled that the prosecutors had brought the land of their own electoral districts and that these lands were spontaneous.

Images taken daily with the webcam are being broadcast on the internet. I think we can question the sincerity of Reichstag when you put the statistics of those deported from Germany in the same period to the images published so far.

Im Jahr 2000 wurde im Reichstag in Berlin die Arbeit "Der Bevölkerung" des Künstlers Hans Haacke aufgebaut, Dieses Wort äußerte sich gegen das Zeichen das "Dem Deutschen Volke "an der vorderen Fassade des gleichen Gebäudes. Mit „Dem Deutschen Volke“ war jeder der in Deutschland lebte gemeint. Abgeordnete brachten Erde aus ihren Wahlkreisen mit und schütteten sie in den Trog damit aus diesen Bodenproben Gras sprießen konnte.

Ich glaube, wir können die Aufrichtigkeit des Reichstags in Frage stellen, wenn man die Statistik im selben Zeitraum, der aus Deutschland deportierten Statistiken mit den bisher veröffentlichten Bildern vergleicht.

"Our roots are in the dark; the earth is our country. Why did we look up for blessing — instead of around, and down? What hope we have lies there. Not in the sky full of orbiting spy-eyes and weaponry, but in the earth we have looked down upon. Not from above, but from below. Not in the light that blinds, but in the dark that nourishes, where human beings grow human souls."
