“Abandoned” is a story of forgotten, lost, unclaimed and plucked, which have been separated from their owners (deliberately or not) in a process such as conflict and war. Graduate students with diverse nationalities, cultures, religions and languages at the Eastern Mediterranean University, Department of Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design provide fascinating perspectives and inspiration on the ”Abandoned” project, thanks to their metaphoric approach and focus on a lost cause, a lost identity, a lost place, a lost idea, and an abandoned dream. Students expressed their take on the project in forms of posters and postcards, motion graphics and experimental videos.
