Kasa Gallery is hosting three designers and an artist with the exhibition Don’t Lie to me! Between dates 28 January and 7 March. The project is curated by Eray Makal and participants Tuğcan Güler, Erhan Muratoğlu, Hayal Pozantı and İlhan Sayın are interpreting the visual representation power of information design.
Information design is a visual discipline which is based on making a certain data/information more comprehensible. However this small show, rather than being interested in the reasons, conditions and requirements of this particular discipline, intends to make visible the details and situataions which have become habitual, lost and tucked away among the texts. The participants try to achieve this by processing the data they collected in a particular field or subject, with new ways of representation.

Member of International Information Design Institute and Society for Environmental Graphic Design. Güler has published articles and papers on graphic design.
