"The future can replace everything, leaving us detached & isolated from others, or it can civilize by inculcating what has been gained and strengthening social bonds. I incite that dialogue, so we may choose intelligently."

Belgin Yucelen

2018 Executive Fellow

With a PhD in chemical engineering and research, Belgin Yucelen knows how exciting the future is. And as a sculptor, she knows the importance of building on a solid foundation. As technology continues to increase our autonomy and capabilities, we must not let it also breed detachment, alienation, and isolation. Our shared history and current social interactions provide solid ground—they civilize us.

Belgin’s sculptures are visual commentaries that question our urge to overthrow our present norms, values, and aesthetics, instead of using them to inform our progress. By mashing past and future together she dares us to cherish the human intimacy and face to face collaboration that we used to take for granted, and to discover new pathways to them.
