In The Camera Trap of Inequalities (2019), Deniz captures displays and then deletes the images of the visitors of the exhibition via a camera trap that she constructed herself with a motion sensor and computer program. The accompanying legal text, outlining the legal issues that arise when photographing people, indicates the discrimination between people and other species.Exhibited side by side with Eluding “humans” (2019), the work points at the different legal meanings and responsibilities attached to photographing people and animals. [ Translation of the legal text by Melis Gebeş.]
