Elif Özbay is an artist whose lens based research practice explores the visual language of displacement through moving image.
Elif Ozbay produces visual pieces that are based on true events and folk tales.
Her lens based practice starts often in the field, where she detects the mysterious in incidental occurrences. In the stage of editing she carries classical techniques such as suspense to the extreme and reinvents postproduction effects as creative problem solving methods to avoid image right issues. In such moments her reports of past events become indistinguishable from performances she has staged.
