The Shadow of Knowledge
Painter and Sculptor Rıfat Koçak’s work called “The Shadow of Knowledge” greets its visitors at the entry of Tofaş Akademi West Campus.
The work which was created by Rıfat Koçak who used scrap automobile parts obtained from Tofaş factory by assessing about 700 metal pieces weights approximately 1 ton. The work which was completed in three weeks is displayed in Tofaş as well as Tofaş Akademi which is in charge of learning and development activities of 17,000 employees including its dealers, services and suppliers.
While the work turned out to be a different automobile with the amalgamation of letters and numbers made of metal reflects both past and present, it revives the transformation story of abstract engineering data into concrete technology. The work describes TOFAŞ’s prospective face and the contribution of producing with knowledge to development. The fact that this work was made of waste metals is invaluable in terms of reflecting the environment vision of TOFAŞ as well.
While there is a child figure made of metal in the front section of the work; with the light reflected from inside two children figures appear in one body. One of the children looks at the silhouette of letters and numbers behind in order to get inspired from the past; and the other looks forward at the sun to build the future. With the video broadcasted in the area where there is a Fiat branded automobile, Tofaş Academy visitors can watch the creation process of the work.
