INFORMATION: Kim Milyoner Olmak İster?

Yassan’s GPS artwork was featured as a quiz question on “Kim Milyoner Olmak İster (Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?),” a popular Turkish public quiz show. Especially for large scale GPS art, it may be easy to make a quiz question in the form of what to draw, because drawing itself becomes a story. It would be great if GPS art becomes popular in Turkey as a result of this.
