From the ancient period to the present day, the history of mankind has undergone a highly variable condition from the hunter-gatherer societies to the modern living spaces. However, the common space of all these conditions is home as the living space. When the historical process is evaluated, home while providing harbouring and shelter conditions, wraps itself up in a structure that includes identity, culture and belonging as a reflection of the changing cultural-social conditions and technological elements. Within this structure, there are/is people/individual in the center of mutual shared experiences as well as open and hidden meanings. The transformation of the concept of home into the concept of nest, closely evokes the concept of identity, culture, memory and belonging, as well as individualization and subjectivity. The statutory architecture of the house in Çatalhöyük, which dates back to the ancient period and at the present time shows a very important feature of archaeological find, also attracts the attention of artists as an artistic element. As an inspiration specific to home/nest in terms of space-memory, home plans, which are the main elements of Çatalhöyük architecture, draw attantion, in unique individual practices in watercolor paintings of Muna Silav and in ceramic/printmaking of Naile Salman Çevik.
