About The Artwork

Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while I was sleeping And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound of silence In restless dreams I walked alone Narrow streets of cobblestone 'Neath the halo of a street lamp I turned my collar to the cold and damp When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light That split the night And touched the sound of silence And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never share No one dared Disturb the sound of silence "Fools" said I, "You do not know Silence like a cancer grows Hear my words that I might teach you Take my arms that I might reach you" But my words like silent raindrops fell And echoed in the wells of silence And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made And the sign flashed out its warning In the words that it was forming And the sign said, "The words of the prophets Are written on the subway walls And tenement halls And whispered in the sounds of silence"

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.
