Serpil Ismihan - MA Show
Trees are witnesses of our history and I believe that trees are also connected to our lives. I live in Cyprus where there are many ancient olive trees. In Greek mythology olive trees represent peace.
Cyprus has not had a peaceful past - from 1974 it has been divided by a wall into two different nationalities - Greek and Turkish, who share the same capital city, Nicosia. For my MA project I want to use the tree as a metaphor for exploring the cultural similarities and the friendships that can still exist on a divided island.
