Hilal Can is an artist based in Istanbul.
Her performance Cyclop Visuals is an analog liquid & light show project by using an overhead projector. The project aims to bring together the musicians and sound artists from various disciplines and practices from all around the world and to visualize the moment in an analog way by using an overhead projector.
Regarding these, it objects to create a new dialogue among artists and share it with the audiences. The visual part of the project focuses on improvisation, expressing emotions, and illustrating sound stories by using different tools like liquids and characters.
