Apricots Before the Sky
2009
7"x7"
Print on Demand, Perfect Bound Artist's Book

Apricots Before the Sky was inspired after my first visit to the Empire State Building in NYC, where a friend told me she has never eaten apricots before. Coming from a Turkish background where apricots are a year-round consumption, I was inspired to write a personal story about fear from skyscrapers illustrated by the photos I took of NYC as seen from above. Presented with a close-up cover image of an apricot's skin, Apricots Before the Sky embodies the clash between the industrial and the organic.
