STORY OF MODERNIZATION PROCES, Diyarbakır-Mardin-İstanbul

Yalter's return to ethno-critical approach can be observed in her joint project with the ACEV (Mother Child Education Foundation) that took place in 2006. In this work, which is carried out in cooperation with the ACEV, the target group was socio-economically low-income families and their preschool-age children and the artist produced an electronic book that goes around in İstanbul-Diyarbakır-Mardin by amalgamating her own materials with the interviews and images (videos, photographs) produced by the mothers and children who participated in the education program. The artist respects the natural existence of each object and subject. So much so that virtual images, photographs, pictures and sounds complement each other naturally and the aesthetics of the artist represent her signature in the most appropriate way. The most important feature of Nil Yalter is that she can handle objects, subjects and languages ​​used in both form and content, away from hierarchy and respect the natural existence of each one. Regardless of the language or languages ​​used - computer, video, photography, pictures - the communication between objects and techniques is natural; they are part of it because they are otherwise unthinkable. In fact, Yalter "persists in the oriental-baroque style based on socio-political reasons despite all the criticism". One of the main reasons for this is the character of the oriental style, which allows the mixing of many objects. This style has become more and more meaningful in parallel with the technology and techniques she uses.
