For a project, Big Family Business, organized by, Adnan Yıldız, for the 2007 Istanbul Biennial, the artist visited factories that were using commercial sewing machines sold by her husband’s company. The artist saw herself as a stranger, an outsider, a spy, a public voyeur, as she photographed women who could be easily replaced like light bulbs.
