About The Artwork

Gregor Johann Mendel, 20 July 1822 – 6 January 1884 was a biologist, meteorologist, mathematician, Augustinian friar and abbot of St. Thomas' Abbey in Brünn (Brno), Margraviate of Moravia. Mendel was born in a German-speaking family in the Silesian part of the Austrian Empire (today's Czech Republic) and gained posthumous recognition as the founder of the modern science of genetics.Though farmers had known for millennia that crossbreeding of animals and plants could favor certain desirable traits, Mendel's pea plant experiments conducted between 1856 and 1863 established many of the rules of heredity, now referred to as the laws of Mendelian inheritance. Mendel worked with seven characteristics of pea plants: plant height, pod shape and color, seed shape and color, and flower position and color. Taking seed color as an example, Mendel showed that when a true-breeding yellow pea and a true-breeding green pea were cross-bred their offspring always produced yellow seeds. However, in the next generation, the green peas reappeared at a ratio of 1 green to 3 yellow. To explain this phenomenon, Mendel coined the terms "recessive" and "dominant" in reference to certain traits. In the preceding example, the green trait, which seems to have vanished in the first filial generation, is recessive and the yellow is dominant. He published his work in 1866, demonstrating the actions of invisible "factors"—now called genes—in predictably determining the traits of an organism.

Erkan has been always in movie sets since his childhood as the son of a Turkish Producer Nihat Cerit. When he was 10, he was trained about optical illusions effect done by mirrors. His life has changed once his father gave him a gift, it was a Commodore 64. One year after Commodore 64's world launch, a 12 year old boy, Erkan fell in love with computers. At home he developed simple computer games and computer programs by turning numeric formulas into visual images, in QBasic language. When he presented these to Teleteknik, (the representative of Commodore in Turkey), he became the youngest employee of Teleteknik at age 13. He wanted to learn more but there was no "master" or mentor about computers at that time so he had to work on his own. Erkan continued his education while working at Teleteknik , he was not spending too much time at school but was getting good grades. Doctors reported him as child with "High IQ." Unfortunately there was no special school for him and he was getting bored at school so he quit his education. He got graduated from High School at age 17 through a special exam. In 1986, he started working at Goldstar Turkey as freelance programmer. In 1988, he started working at Apple Computers Turkey and got trained on Desktop publishing, Computer Aided Design and Graphic Design. He developed several software programs during the years he worked at Apple TR. In 1991, he decided to focus on Industrial IT solutions including textile pattern design, computer aided manufacturing design, local & wide area network, NCR Corp., CNC programming and worked as sales representative for IBM. He developed neurosurgery & microsurgery video recording facility for Uludag University. In 1994, SGI, Silicon Graphics Inc. contacted Erkan and he became the Media Advisor for SGI and started preparing media coverage on Virtual Reality. When Telecine wanted to purchase SGI server, and they also asked Erkan to work with them. He got trained in 3 dimensional photo-realistic design and visualization by Telecine Corp & SGI. That's when he got interested in Stereoscopy. During these years he was also writing articles on technology for several major magazines and newspapers. In 1995, he attended a Naval Operations Practice directed by Turkish Army in a Frigate for 15 days as a technology reporter. That's when his journey with Stereoscopy began, after seeing through the stereoscopic viewfinder of a long-range heavy machine gun.
