Women Cinemakers the poem? Although my paintings are colorful, I prefer to use monochromatic colors or black and white color palettes in video works. And as I mentioned earlier, looking for characters that are taken from everyday life and understood by viewers from different cultures and continents, I have been looking for a long time for male and female characters. I realized that women's shoes and men's shoes would be most suitable for my audience. And so that my day-to-day diary would be understandable for the international audience, I decided to "write" it on the screen using international symbols such as road signs, supermarket signs and symbols such as taxi, emergency exit symbol or the universally recognized symbols for male and female toilet signs or business logos, etc. In a nutshell, I'm looking to convey ideas in my video works in an international image language. Thanks a lot for your time and for sharing your thoughts, Ruta. Finally, would you like to tell us readers something about your future projects? How do you see your work evolving? Well, you and this interview gave me a lot of encouragement, so I plan to re-create a video of a series of portraits: a series that I made in charcoal or ink on paper many years ago. If I succeed in moving those drawings to the screen and they will relive in the digital world, the "actors" become the faces of people, perhaps again, to create video poetry, this time from portraits. So again, I will take pictures of my drawings, dig them into a digital space, do their digital manipulation, and again put them from the stills, put them in place, until I understand that they are looking at the whole as a whole, and this can be considered as a completed piece of experimental video. Well, I'd still like to combine this upcoming video work with art sound or just to find a soundtrack for it.
