SPEAKERS POINT

limestone, diameter 500cm
location: Halıcıoğlu Park, next to  Rahmi M. Koç Museum on the shore of the Golden Horn, Istanbul.
At the invitation of Istanbul European Cultural Capital 2010 with support of the Netherlands Consulate General.

The Speakers Point is made of stones from the archeological site of the Harbour of Theodosius (100 AD) in Yenikapı, Istanbul.
Some stones are sticking out from the surface of the Speakers Point and are carved with ears.
There is a Turkish saying ‘Yerin kulağı vardır’ (the ground has ears), meaning that you must be careful with what you say.
At the Speakers Point you can speak freely but don’t stumble over your listeners!
