    About The Work

    baba! is a small brass sculpture of a civic object found in Istanbul streets. Sometimes made of plastic, these objects are often bent and driven over by the traffic and resulting that once a standing object becomes flattened to the ground. The objects are referred to as baba's (a Turkish word for father). Within municipality structure, babas serve to limit and direct pedestrian traffic on sidewalks; while the column-like shape, name, and function indicate the deeply patriarchal underpinnings of the societies that produce them.
