Sinopsis / Synopsis:

The Marmara Sea in Turkey is dying due to untreated wastewater, rising temperatures, and overfishing. A thick layer of slime known as marine mucilage, or “sea snot” appears off the coasts of Istanbul. UNTITLED brings together the photographs of people swimming in the Marmara Sea that I taken in 2010 with a talk on mucilage from 2021 by the chairman of the Nationalist Movement Party. With found additions to a personal archive, the video points out the potential of every image and moment to become a witness.
