Berkay Tuncay points out to the similarities between emojis/memes -small pictures prevalent on the Internet-, and cave art/Egyptian hieroglyphics. Smiley Column (2019) is a photograph taken at the ancient city of Perge in Antalya. A face is carved 2.5-3 meters high onto a thousands of years old column. This ambiguous facial expression carved on the column reminds us that no matter how further we feel with the technological advancements, future generations might find us primitive and ridiculous when time is considered in a broader sense.
